Two Alessandros come to Carroll Gardens. Alessandro Peluso of Bocca and Cacio e Pepe has teamed up with Alessandro Piliego of The House to open Palo Cortado on Court Street in Carroll Gardens. The space recently opened according to Grub Street.
The new hip watering hole sports a dozen sherries by the glass, staying true to the name of the establishment. It also has a small selection of beers, and a number of wine-based cocktails.
Running the kitchen at Palo Cortado is Jimmy Stafford of Wall and Water. The small space offers up a collection of tapas including cold, hot, and dessert plates. They also have a small selection of charcuterie and Spanish cheeses.
The dimly-lit rustic interior offers a casual setting for patrons to sip a glass and share a few bites. Cacio e Pepe and Bocca remain some of the most popular and well-loved wine bars serving small plates in the city.
Spanish cuisine is hot at the moment, and Palo Cotado is surely not the last trendy Spanish restaurant to open in the neighborhood.
