Following the departure of the preopening toque—Top Chef alum Camille Becerra—owner Joey Verdone took the reins at this 74-seat American restaurant. Nodding to the neighborhood's urban backdrop, the street-themed space is decorated with colorful graffiti murals and pairs of bronzed sneakers hanging from the ceiling. The wide-ranging menu runs the gamut, from fried pickles and a cookie platter to uni ravioli and veal sweetbreads.
