Bresca Rating Scale


Sadly for its fans, Bresca closed May 11, 2013. Chef/owner Krista Kern Desjarlais has launched Bresca and the Honey Bee in New Gloucester.
Bresca has been one of my favorite restaurants in Portland ever since they opened in 2007. I like everything on the menu but some of my favorites are the shaved brussels sprouts and the tuscan black kale. For dessert I highly recommend that you have the buttermilk panna cotta; it easily makes my short list of the Best Things to Eat in Portland.
The Boston Globe dubbed it a "Tiny Treasure of a Restaurant", and Conde Nast Traveler listed Bresca as one of the hottest restaurants in their 2008 global survey of up and coming eateries.
Chef Krista Kern Desjarlais was a James Beard Foundation nominee for Best Chef: Northeast in 2010.
In 2013, Bresca started serving lunch. The lunch menu marks new territory while still holding to the same high standards of the dinner fare.
