Two of the city’s most ambitious young chefs—Jason Cichonski (formerly at Lacroix) and Chip Roman (Mica)—launched this rustic-modern spot in late 2011. Their food is New American with plenty of inventive pairings, like baby octopus with sunflower tahini and orange and duck Magret with heart of palm and guava. A 15-seat bar that runs the length of an airy dining room features rotating craft beers on draft and 20 wines by the glass served from a high-tech Cruvinet, which keeps the wines fresh for up to six weeks.
