Fodor's Expert Review Nora Gray
The crowd that fills this casual and lively spot nightly is hip, and the simple, modern Southern Italian comfort food and impeccable service keeps them coming back. Start your meal with the roasted cauliflower frittata or the Dungeness crab salad with confit Meyer lemon and deer carpaccio. Primis like the spinach and nettle olive leaf pasta, olives and Parmigiano broth, or the tajarin pasta with fennel-almond pesto and matane shrimps are always a great choice, and the celery root Marsala with mixed mushrooms and hazelnuts make for nice secondis. The extensive, mostly Italian and French wine list is varied and offers several by-the-glass choices.
