In the Summer of 2009 Marco Polo Ristorante swapped its takeout operation for a new wine bar called Enoteca on Court. Not all restaurants in Brooklyn have a Johnson & Wales-trained owner chef, but with Marco Chirico, immersed in the restaurant biz since age 11, Enoteca on Court does! “Enoteca” is Italian for “wine repository,” and the restaurant/wine bar boasts an extensive international wine list at reasonable prices, as well as flights of wine. Come relax after holiday shopping. Their brick oven does double duty, not only turning out the most marvelous brick oven pizza but also serving up other scrumptious menu items with a distinctive brick oven flavor. This shared plate restaurant features charcuterie and cheese plates, salads you won’t find in other restaurants in Brooklyn, pasta dishes, paninis, and of course calzones. The grappa (a liqueur) and gelato are even homemade!
