    I went about 6 weeks ago. Perfectly fine....room looks nice. Service was good. I would rate the food a B overall, B- for a place rated as a top place. A bit "corporate" in feel (as in owned by a corporation) and a bit paint by number. Wasn't unhappy but didn't thrill me, especially in view of the tariff.

    *Spoiler Alert*

    The Top Chef 2018 title has been awarded to Spaggia's exec chef, Joe Flamm

    Seeing that this thread on Spaggia was last updated in 2015, does anyone have any recent updates on dining here? I assume the resto will receive an influx of reservations as a result of the Top Chef winner... so perhaps it may be worth a thought to book now.

    I'm also curious to read the thoughts of others on Spaggia vs Cafe Spaggia...

    Cool. That's the 2nd Spiaggia chef to be Top Chef.

    Got engaged in December at Spiaggia so perhaps that colors my excellent experience :lol: but food and service were stellar. Chef Flamm was highly visible in the restaurant the night we were there but I too imagine reservations will now be a hot ticket! The highlight of the meal was probably the signature truffle gnocchi which comes with a hefty price tag but is classic and was pretty near perfect. Ate in the fall at Cafe Spiaggia with my mom and despite the renovations the meal wasn't as memorable as previous Cafe visits have been.

    Sarah Grueneberg actually was second in Season 9. Close but no cigar.

    I'll admit, that is why Mrs Willie & I have reservations for mid April at Spiaggia. Have never been before.
    I did absolutely nothing and it was everything I thought it could be.
