The inspiration behind officine BRERA comes from classic recipes of cucina povera,the countryside along the River Po’ Valley in Northern Italy where both Chef Angelo Auriana and Matteo Ferdinandi grew up. Both have fond memories here of hearty meals shared with family and friends.
The menu at BRERA displays Chef Auriana’s view on authentic Italian flavors while incorporating his professionalism, personality, experience and intuition into the dishes he creates. At BRERA, Chef Auriana has taken traditional recipes from his heritage and made them accessible to the American public-something he feels is his responsibility. Combining contemporary culture with traditions from his past, Chef Auriana always makes sure to stay true to his Italian lineage by using locally sourced, fresh ingredients.
Ferdinandi’s passion for excellence in service is something that he and the BRERA team consistently strive for, while always showing their guests respect and generosity.
