Subtlety is not a hallmark of this striking addition to the Union Square dining scene, outfitted with brash Fellini posters and a replica of the famous Roman sculpture La Bocca della Verità. The kitchen favors brazen pairings and techniques. A surprisingly successful appetizer features delicate petals of yellowfin tuna crudo marinated in (gulp) Sprite; pork belly is slow-cooked with juniper berries and served with chickpea-rosemary puree. For dessert, the wild-berry compote gets a delectable—if junky—kick via Nutella.
