This place became famous when it was run by founder Maria Barrutia, and on and off it was a popular destination for local foodies over the years. Many people held their breath when she sold the place to Guido Tassi, but we can all breathe a sigh of relief because the cooking is better than ever. The menu is more creative, with bolder flavors and more beautiful presentations. Likewise, the service has been stepped up a notch, as has the wine list. There's now nowhere better in the neighborhood for lunch, nor for dinner on the two nights a week it's open late. The star of the lineup is the roasted, stuffed whole quail, but there's not a misstep on the menu.
