The slightly more sophisticated and expensive cousin of the suburban Bravo restaurants (theyre owned by the same Ohio-based company) is also the noisiest dining room on the Country Club Plaza. The biggest differences between the two restaurant concepts are that Brio offers brunch (on both Saturdays and Sundays) and that there are a couple of signature Brio dishes (such as crab cakes and carpaccio) on its menu. The deécor is theatrical, the service entertaining and the portions, as they say in Rome, molto grande. — Charles Ferruzza
