Bacchanale Italian Kitchen and Django’s Restaurant and Wine Bar
Kate and Chris Ladoulis' year-old Bacchanale revamp means crowd-pleasing fare such as build-your-own-bruschetta, salumi platters and winter-veggie lasagna in fennel-cream sauce – all nestled into a twinkling modern Italian dining room (pictured).
The Ladoulises also own nearby Django’s, an equally stylish and popular Mediterranean-tinged small-plates lounge where the menu ranges from polenta-dusted baby artichokes with Parmesan-almond dip to cocoa butter-seared scallops with brown-butter brittle and Meyer lemon confit.
