You’ll Savor the Flavor

The word on the street…

Bricco’s Brussels Sprouts are outstanding. 

I second that vote. They’re the best I’ve tried in all the restaurants I’ve covered since 2015.

“Try them,” I heard time and time again. I ordered them and it’s a fact.

What makes them extraordinary? Bricco’s chef prepares them with a Sriracha, honey & lime vinaigrette and without a doubt, the “Crispy Brussels Sprouts” appetizer is the perfect start to any meal at Bricco. Best of all, you’ll satisfy your sweet tooth with one serving of Brussels Sprouts while adding a vitamin-packed vegetable to your diet.

Crispy Brussels Sprouts are the perfect beginning or start to your meal at Bricco, Harrisburg.

So why focus on an appetizer when the entree is equally as delicious? The sprouts set the stage for the food that followed. Chef Collier and his team created an organic chicken breast (made to order gluten and dairy-free) that was loaded with flavor. The variation, with mushrooms (of course from Pennsylvania – The Mushroom Capital of the World), elevated the meal to a profound level of perfection.

If you’re wondering what night to dine at Bricco, keep in mind the menu changes weekly but the theme — inventive Mediterranean dishes, California-style stone-oven pizza, and homemade pasta does not vary. Guaranteed, whatever you order, will be a crowd-pleaser. Chef Collier and his team draw from favorite flavors from the South of France, Italy, Greece, and Spain and quality and flavor are consistent.

Bricco is Harrisburg’s only Distinguished Restaurant of North America (DiRoNA), Wine Spectator and Santé magazine award-winning restaurant,

Expect Joseph Benkovic, Bricco restaurant manager, to stop by your table and answer any questions you might have about the restaurant, food or wine menu, or ingredients. He can also give you a historical overview and more information about The Olewine School of Culinary Arts.

Bricco is a collaboration between The Olewine School of Culinary Arts and the Harrisburg Hotel Corporation. Up-and-coming chefs bring their ideas and skills to the kitchen. The program was founded and funded by the Benjamin Olewine III family. Bread and delectable desserts are among the creations the apprentice chefs create for Bricco clients.
