Burrata at Allegro

Chef Enzo Febbraro isn’t about to give up his secret family recipe or technique for the burrata he makes daily at Allegro at 5 p.m. (just in time for dinner service). After many samplings, we can surmise that a magic combination of fresh mozzarella and cream results in a buttery (that’s what burrata means in Italian), milky and airy cheese that’s ideal for blissfully uncomplicated dishes such as caprese salads—or to nibble on its own with bread and fruity olive oil.
