[Arancini is one of the many appetizers.]
There are new pasta dishes on the list plus an added Milanese pork chop. Pizza and burgers also are featured.
Torn between the salmon and a lemon chicken, I opted for the steak frites, but then substituted the Parmesan mashed potatoes for the house-cut fries. The potatoes were as richly decadent as I'd hoped.
Patrons at a neighboring table dug into their tureen of fries and commented they arrived nice and hot.
The flat iron steak was prepared medium rare just as ordered, and was juicy, tender and full of flavor, further enhanced by a dollop of compound butter on top. The steak is from a farm in Illinois where it was dry aged.
And rocketing the dish to the next level was the char-grilled broccolini served al dente and bursting with beautifully seasoned flavor. This relative of broccoli was revelatory.
Our server pointed out the broccolini is showcased as an appetizer prepared with fontina cheese and tomato. It could be a meal, she said.
