Bricco Reimagines Farm-to-Table Dining With Seasonal Eating

By Bricco Posted on December 17th, 2015

Among foodies, the latest craze in urban areas is farm-to-table dining. However, here in Harrisburg, Bricco has been doing farm-to-table dishes long before they were en vogue.

What Is Farm-to-Table Dining?

Farm-to-table restaurants are defined as restaurants that offer the majority of recipes using fresh, local and seasonal ingredients. While some produce may be organic, that’s not always a requirement. The produce and meat are also heirloom, meaning they are not modified by the farmers in any way. Farm-to-table restaurants keep recipes simple, keep sauces light, and make small batches of dishes that rotate seasonally.

Our Take on Farm-to-Table Dining

Bricco’s doors first opened in 2006. For the last decade, we have built our reputation on a fluid menu that changes with the calendar. We work with local farmers to incorporate seasonal area produce into our dishes. That means fresh tomatoes in our pasta dishes each summer, tasty squash-based sides in the fall, Brussels sprouts in the winter and spring onions every March. We shop locally for meat and poultry, and believe everything just tastes better when it spends less time on a freezer truck.

What to Expect at Bricco

Bricco has built a solid reputation around the Midstate region as the go-to place for Tuscan-style dishes. We have a variety of California-style stone oven pizzas – try unique flavor combinations such as House-made sausage, roasted fennel, red onion & Parmesan or Roasted cauliflower, locally smoked bacon, peppadew peppers & mozzarella. You can also try homemade pasta and flavorful Mediterranean dishes packed with fresh, local ingredients. Our famous pork chops come from a local, family-owned farm and our flat-iron steak is both local and grass-fed.
