Brian Pieri’s restaurants, Bar Lucca and The StoneRose, have received a few accolades recently. Users of Open Table named Bar Lucca one of the Top 100 Neighborhood Gems in the country and Thrillist included The StoneRose’s french fries among the Top 12 in the region. Thrillist described the french fries as follows:
Their thick-cut truffle fries, which they toss in truffle grease (the best kind) and chunks of Parmesan, are probably enough on their own, but if you need something else… you’re probably pretty fat… and you’re definitely gonna order the The BBQ smoked duck breast sandwich and an oversized bottle of craft beer.
The big award came though when Bar Lucca was named Best New Restaurant by Main Line Today magazine. The magazine states:
The StoneRose Restaurant’s Brian Pieri has captured lightning in a bottle once again with Bar Lucca. Modeled after the hipster joints Pieri discovered in Tuscany, it’s a rustic, Euro-cool hub for wood-fired pizzas, meat-and-cheese boards, hearty main courses, Italian-focused beers and wines, and spritzy cocktails.
