There are few neighborhood places that can exist as an unpretentious restaurant while also nailing the fine points of dining. Usually there's a disconnect—but not here. Co-owners Bobby Stuckey (master sommelier and wine director) and chef Lachlan Mackinnon-Patterson replicate the experience of eating at a frasca in the Friuli-Venezia Giulia region of Italy. Together, the pair elevates Friulian cuisine to extraterrestrial levels, educating the palate about wine and serving as hosts to provide the proper grounds for a thoroughly relaxing food journey.
