In the News: More on the butcher at Brookfield

CICCI DI CARNE DI TUSCAN BUTCHER
Gothamist and Grub Street tuned in quicker than any of us did about Cicci di Carne by Dario at Brookfield: Dario Cecchini is a legendary Tuscan butcher. But this location seems to just have his name and not much else: “Cicci Di Carne by Dario is owned and operated by a Beverly Hills-based outfit called Creating Culinary Communities (or C3) which, and I’ll just quote their website, ‘is focused on disrupting the food & beverage industry by capitalizing on rapidly evolving customer preferences such as food halls, ghost kitchens and mobile delivery.’ The company runs brands like Umami Burger and Krispy Rice, and Cecchini’s role in Cicci Di Carne by Dario seems to be one of ‘partnership’ and ‘menu consultation’ more than anything else.” Either way, will get in there soonish. I have long thought the neighborhood needed a straight-up Italian deli like the ones I grew up with, tho not sure this is it…
