MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

What's the best Italian-American restaurant in town? There is no right answer. Then consider Chef/owners Ian Rusnak and Eric Safin's newcomer and you might just change your mind. With Sinatra crooning overhead, sleek wood overtones, and handsome leather, it's hard not to be besotted by this intimate little gem—and everyone is.
It's BYOB, so dust off your best Barolo and waltz on in. A hearty bread basket is the kickoff of dreams, while that cherished classic, clams casino, flaunts a divine blend of taste and texture. Rigatoni a la vodka requires little introduction but a garnish of breadcrumbs makes a welcome surprise. Then, chicken parmesan arrives surmounted with marinara and mozz. If the words nostalgic and classic come to mind, you get the picture.
