Officine Brera opens for dinner tonight in the Arts District, though beware: it’s already booked up tight and, despite earlier reports directly from the restaurant, they're not accepting walk-ins. At least you can see the menu here, which is full of wood-grilled options and a handful of raw bar bites.

The strongest item on the medium-sized menu may well be the carne bovina, a dry aged short rib and ribeye combo that clocks in over $50. Other offerings include a braised beef shoulder, potato gnocchi, grilled octopus, and a cured pork back fat starter.

The opening tonight is certainly a sigh of relief for Matteo Ferdinandi (The Factory Kitchen) and team, as the place has encountered near-endless delays since first popping up on everyone’s radar back in June. A September (and then New Years) deadline came and went, with the only announcement of their official opening happening late last month.

Office Brera is open from 5:30 p.m. to midnight daily, with Sunday hours from 4 p.m. on.
