Bibiana Osteria and Enoteca

Excellent and appropirately rich sweetbread appetizer

Bibiana Osteria and Enoteca Review

You might call this the Italian version of the überpopular Indian spot Rasika, and you'd be correctly noting the modernist fingerprints of local impresario Ashok Bajaj. The 120-seat dining room, decorated in Bajaj's favored spare tones and metallic accents, specializes in hearty Florence-inspired cuisine dished out by uncommonly attentive and knowledgeable servers. In a city where Italian spots too often hit obvious notes such as brick-oven pizzas, celebrity customers such as Claire Danes can try presentations such as crispy duck breast with kumquats and blue crab served atop linguine colored jet-black by squid ink. The surroundings may be rich, but the ample portions and sensible offerings such as the $27 three-course lunch make for a recession-friendly splurge.
