Fodor's Expert Review Melfi's

$$$$ North of Broad Italian Fodor's Choice
The third entry in Brooks Reitz's geographically constrained restaurant empire (you can stand on Upper King Street and see all three venues at once), Melfi's is as evocative as the chophouse and oyster garage that preceded it. Styled after a quintessential Italian-American dining room, Melfi's mischievous streak darts through the shaken Negronis, and ends with the restaurant's excellent Roman-style pies.
