With the wine list sticking patriotically to Italy the menu does not lag behind and features half-moon duck-stuffed pasta, sweet-and-sour pork meatballs and grilled swordfish. The word is, red-sauce beef braciola with broccoli rabe, the crudo and the artichoke & sunchoke dish are worth it, too.
Two spacious glass-enclosed dining rooms are connected by a marble 38-foot bar in the middle, and there's a potential for an outdoor seating. The whole plaza is paved in monochrome mosaic. Other names in charge are the pastry chef Michael Laiskonis, the floor manager Luca Vesnaver, and Jeff Katz of Del Posto oversees the whole thing. The press is already great, and why not, as this is B&B's first new restaurant in years.
