I enjoyed the meal here although I wasn't blown away. This is a modern spin on Tuscan cuisine. Did the 7 course tasting menu. A few hits and misses along the way. Would come back and try some things a la carte next time.
This is a great neighborhood gem with interesting and delicious food. The waiter was helpful to help navigate the menu. An amuse Bouche, was a nice touch. The mushroom app was amazing as was the Pasta with homemade meatballs. I had a dish of tongue, sausage, cheek and thigh. It was just superb. I am a beer drinker and they are not shy about their beer pricing, but have a great selection. There was a lot of buzz in the main room
The acustics are among the worst in the city - truly deafening. Plus straitfoward ingredients-driven food can, let's face it, be a scam. I was going with a large group so they prepared a multi-course tasting menu for us. Turned out that it was on the theme of fava beans - every single course (except desert). Everything was bland and boring, and can't believe the kitchen's cost for most of the dishes exceeded $1.50, but it cost $85 or so.
An oasis in the East Village for foodies. Very friendly waitstaff and even Chef Marco stuck his head out of the kitchen to welcome us. The first half of the tasting menu threw up some delights for even the most jaded palate, though latter three dishes of rabbit and two desserts did not live up to the buildup.
Funky wine selection, over half of which are Reislings from every part of the globe.
The food and, with the advice of the "sommelier", the Spanish wine were very nice. The service drifted off during the meal in an otherwise pleasant modernoid environment.
