WHAT IS BARANO?
Barano is South Williamsburg’s wood fired seasonal Italian restaurant by Chef Albert Di Meglio.
WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED?
Barano proudly anchors South Williamsburg at 26 Broadway.
We are on the south side of the street, right before you hit the corner of Broadway and Kent Avenue.
WHAT ARE YOU COOKING?
Chef Di Meglio’s seasonal menus adapt old world cooking techniques to modern tastes, using our open kitchen’s wood-burning oven and open-fire grill. All of Barano’s pastas are made on-site and by hand. Our mozzarella is also made in house, hand pulled, and served à la minute.
What does Barano mean?
We are named after Barano D’Ischia, the township in southern Italy where Chef Di Meglio’s grandmother, Giuseppina, was born. Giuseppina was instrumental in Al’s growth as a chef, and her cooking incited his love and career in food. Without her, you wouldn’t be joining us for dinner tonight. As a tribute to the place that educated Giuseppina in the art of cooking, we decided to name ourselves Barano.
