MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View
A chic and sleek crowd of area foodies gathers at this trendy restaurant, nestled in a complex and right beside sister shop/deli Salumeria (by night it transforms for private parties), cocktail bar Trick Dog and coffee shop Sightglass. Wend your way to the central courtyard, with a trickling fountain and glass doors leading into the main space, where a vast open kitchen with a wood-burning hearth faces the simple wood tables. Along the way, you might taste a mound of burrata surrounded by melon cubes, cucumber slices and purslane tossed in a chili-herb vinaigrette. Gamey pork trotter agnolotti is balanced by lemon verbena; while smoked short ribs dotted with harissa and served with charred eggplant purée and mint sauce are fork-tender and flavor-packed.
