Went at the end of August.
Standout was a pizza margherita ($12). Crust was as thin as I’ve ever had, comparable to Pizzetta 211 in SF. Excellent flavors, nice crunch. A bianca might have worked better for such thin crust, it was a bit soggy in the middle. It was the first night they served pizza, so maybe they’ll head in another direction, who knows? Definitely one to watch on that score.
Coccoli ($5) was fried bread stuffed with cheese, sort of like a savory danish. I’d order that again.
Corn griddle cakes ($7) were soggy and kind of boring.
Roasted aged duck breast with potatoes and wax beans ($24) was great. The roast figs on the plate were good but made no sense to me with the duck.
Whey-braised lamb with beans ($25) was dry and kind of boring. Would have worked better shredded and mixed with the broth.
Drank an excellent 2007 Accordini “Le Bessole” Amarone, good value at $70. Also had a glass of tap Friulano that was flavorless and a glass of good Muscadet.
Overall it kind of reminded me of Cafe Rouge, though less consistent.
