Just next door to its fancier big sister, Quince, this urban trattoria is just as in demand. Chef Michael Tusk's lush Italian dishes are driven by the seasons and are full of flavor and refined-yet-rustic execution. The pastas (like the raviolo di ricotta, farm egg, and brown butter) and warm housemade ricotta with wild mushrooms are irresistible, but so is the juicy spit-roasted pork. The look is comfortably chic, with wood tables, quality stemware, and fantastic
Italian wines to match (all bottles are $40 each, and $10 by the glass). There are also some excellent cocktails to enjoy at the back bar while waiting for your table (walk-ins are sure to discover a wait). The polished service, lively crowd, and daily-changing menu keep diners coming back, again and again.
