Frasca Food and Wine

Kelly Kaoudis
Frasca has long been considered one of the best restaurants — Italian or otherwise — in not just the state, but the country. Its food is inspired by Italy's northeastern-most region, Friuli Venezia Giulia, and its front-of-the-house work is also legendary: Frasca has won three James Beard awards, including one for Outstanding Service in 2019. Another winner is the wine program, led by co-founder and master sommelier Bobby Stuckey. Fine-dining restaurants became particularly challenging to keep open during the pandemic, but after shuttering for twelve weeks, Frasca made a comeback and has been thriving under new executive chef Rob Hurd, who took the reins in May 2021.
