This East Village restaurant is channeling Mediterranean influences into its good-looking small plates. Well, with a chef born and raised in Turin, what else would you expect?
Expect a menu ranging from arancini Norma with tomato, eggplant, and ricotta to Angus beef carpaccio with pepitas, shaved Parmigiano and truffle, or charred octopus, basil pesto cous cous, artichokes, and red pepper couli.
The wine list goes big on European imports, while cocktails include Sangria and Venetian Fizz for extra sunny vibes. The beer list is strong too, with local IPAs such as Greenport Other Side and Sloop Juice Bomb alongside seasonal specials.
