An intimate Southern Italian restaurant, Destino is upscale without being pretentious. An enormous Renaissance style painting reminiscent of the Sistine Chapel adorns the ceiling, while black cushioned walls exude elegance with a goth flair.
Not only did our waiter bring a basket of assorted, fresh bread to the table with olive oil, but he also served up three perfect servings of bruschetta. The tomatoes were fresh and bright, and the crisp bread was sprinkled with just enough olive oil to keep it all moist.
Getting everything into one bite proved tricky, but I loved the marriage of textures. The balsamic drizzle was the perfect addition and really balanced the earthy flavors. I almost would have liked less polenta and more tomato, but I'd honestly eat this dish again no matter what.
