Back in July, Rhapsody, the restaurant adjacent to Symphony Center, closed but announced that the property, under the same ownership, would renovate and return as Tesori a couple of months later. Well, that day has come and Tesori, a new Mediterranean-focused restaurant, is now open.
While Italian chef Dean Zanella had headed up Rhapsody for nearly the last two years, the announcement also included news that Zanella would be replaced with chef Andrew Deuel, who worked in New York most recently at Regional and Armani Ristorante.
Now under the leadership of Deuel, the 180-seat Tesori with an additional 60-seat wood-soaked lounge, has gone full-on Italian for lunch and dinner. The menu features antipasti and salads, like ahi tuna tartare with beefsteak tomatoes; sea scallops with braised leek and jumbo lump crab; beef carpaccio with pickled chanterelles; lobster club; agnolotti with duck confit and foie gras; pistachio-crusted branzino with new potatoes; lamb shank with cippolini onion and fava beans and more.
