More like a Caravaggio painting than a place of business, this food shop and wine bar is dark and decadent. The shop in front beckons with top-quality comestibles: wild Alaskan smoked salmon, hand-sliced prosciutto from Italy and Spain, more than 300 cheeses, and a dizzying array of wines. Venture farther inside to a cavelike room where you'll be served artisanal cheeses and salumi, as well as an extensive selection of unusual dishes and interesting takes on classics. Try the mortadella of Bologna with 3-year-aged parmigiano, burrata with Norwegian herring caviar, or go for pasta with sardines or Sicilian linguini with red prawns and cumin. The menu features meats, seafood (including a nice selection of tartars and other raw fish preparations), and vegetarian-friendly items. Reserve a table in the cozy wine cellar beneath the dining room. And afterward head around the corner to their bakery for rightfully famous breads and sweets.
