Tiny but immensely popular, excellent New American-Med restaurant/bar by Chef Joey Campanaro with seasonally-updated menus featuring the best locally-available ingredients with a Mediterranean flair. Joey’s culinary acumen began by learning in his Italian grandmother’s kitchen (sounds familiar), and was honed at some of America’s finest restaurants before opening The Little Owl (and sibs Market Table NYC and The Clam).
Love that the house red is a Sicilian, and proceeds to a good cause!
