Restaurant: Brio Tuscan Grille

What happens when 20 coworkers need to eat lunch all at one table? Chaos ensues! Luckily Brio at Newport on the Levee could come to our rescue (even with no reservations). 

Service was a bit slow - which can be expected with this many people. The servers were very nice and did their best but we definitely were there more than an hour. Again - to be expected.

The table was served bread first - everybody liked it - and ate it knowing service might take a while. Good stuff here.

Quite a few of us got a bowl of the lobster bisque ($5.95) to start with. It wasn't cheap but it was good. The bisque was thick and creamy with small pieces of lobster. That was the only thing most of us said was that it would have been nice to have more lobster. That said, every cup was practically licked clean.

My coworker recommended their Sausage, Pepperoni & Ricotta Flatbread ($13.35). It's very crispy and thin - which I liked. I thought it was a little overcooked and could use more ricotta. As you can see - it's minimal. I definitely liked the bisque more than the flatbread.

Why Should You Go? I didn't love my flatbread but the bisque was very good. Most everybody was happy with their entrees and I think the selection they offer is good. They're a bit pricey for a coworker lunch - but when you're trying to seat that many people together - beggars can't be choosers. All in all - I like Brio. I'd just like it better if I was there on a date with my husband.
