Anne Fishbein Sfincione: focaccia Siciliana, rosemary, sea salt and olive oil

Details

  • Sun.-Thu., 5:30-11 p.m.; Fri.-Sat., 5:30 p.m.-mid.
You could easily make a beautiful meal from the antipasti section alone: delicately fried squash blossoms stuffed with fior de latte; a crudo of raw ridgeback prawns with a gloriously creamy texture; pork meatballs that have been quickly fried and burst with porky flavor. If the panzanella is available, you should absolutely order it, because it means chef Evan Funke has come across enough beautiful summer produce to create the perfect bright and snappy salad, set off by the grounding pleasure of crispy bread. But you're here for the pastas. Every table seems to have a plate of the pappardelle, which means Funke is often in the pasta room early in the evening rolling out rounds of dough and cutting the thick noodles, knowing he'll run out by mid-evening if he doesn't get ahead. Bathed in a mellow Bolognese, the pasta is practically silky, making the pappardelle of your past seem rough and clumsy by comparison. Read our full review.
