2012 Best Bite #8: Ricotta and honeycomb vasi, Davanti Enoteca

Each day in December, I’m celebrating my best bites (and sips) in 2012, posted in chronological order.

Why it’s a Best Bite: I love Davanti’s Italian small-plates concept, and it’s appetizers like these that make it so successful. The restaurant devotes a section of its menu to vasi, toast and spreads served in miniature mason jars. The dish is a lesson in simplicity: just impossibly creamy ricotta, delicate honey, and crusty bread.

The details: Davanti Enoteca, 1359 W Taylor St., Chicago.

  1. I had a crostini sort of like this once at Due Lire in Lincoln Square – it wasn’t as DIY, but it came with ricotta, a big slab of honeycomb, and English peas. Sadly it looks like it was a temporary special since it’s not on their menu online. Yum!
