Basil Seasonal Dining Restaurant Review: Basil has always been known for offering local, seasonal fare, but executive chef Soerke Peters (Ca' del Sole, The Sunset Restaurant) took it to a new level when he acquired the restaurant in 2012. From the first taste of verdant pesto spread to the last mouthful of dessert, diners are in for a treat at this eco-friendly establishment. Black squid ink linguine with sea urchin balances rich flavor and interesting texture, and the fresh burrata with pepper jam and prosciutto is something you'll never forget. And don't skip the country pork and duck pâté with whole-grain mustard and microgreens. Note: More than half the restaurant's seating is outdoors, but there are heaters and awnings, so it's enjoyable in all but the worst of weather.
