Beet Casoncelli with Poppy Seeds and Brown Butter

Julie Hara and Italian-born Chef Pietro Biondi opened Nocciola in 2008. Since then, fans have filled the rustic-chic blue dining room, airy terrace and patio for a taste of Biondi’s traditional Italian food with a focus on locally sourced, seasonal ingredients. On the menu, look for such standout dishes as beet casoncelli topped with poppy seeds and brown butter, and seared lamb over thinly sliced celery and pecorino tartufo. The pretty porch is the perfect spot to sip an aperitivo and catch the much-hyped “pink moment.”
