Buon Appetito brings food, wine, and art together in dowtown’s Little Italy district. Along with a wine bar and market next door, Buon Appetito has an upscale Euro look outside with its wheat-colored walls, navy awnings, and wrought ironwork. More like a crowded café inside, the restaurant’s bright space is also an art gallery with monthly-changing exhibits. Antipasti is available like Italian-made charcuterie and cheeses, and pastas are house-made daily, including the fusilli pasta topped with duck ragu. Entrée items are classic seafood, game, chicken, and beef preparations such as veal piccata.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
