Critic’s Notes

Simple treatment of fresh ingredients makes for impeccable pastas—airy gnocchi and tender pappardelle—at Brad Schlieder’s cozy nook. Smoked duck in risotto is a winner, as are braised prime short ribs on a bed of saffron polenta. Finish with panna cotta with red wine and caramel sauce. Nimble servers make up for the crowded seating.
