Coral walls, a lengthy bar and high ceilings lend an appropriately Mediterranean feel to complement the stellar Sicilian pickings. Homemade crabmeat-stuffed ravioli and braised short ribs are on the menu. This is island cuisine, though, so you’ll want to try a fish dish, such as fresh, tender, baked sardines scented with bay leaves and lemon and dotted with raisins and pine nuts. All breads and desserts (except ice cream) are made in-house. If you’re catching a show at BAM, make this your first stop.
