Chef-owner Zakary Pelaccio has lived and worked in places like Thailand and Mexico, so it’s no surprise to find such globe-hopping specials as Malaysian kang kung (greens sautéed with shrimp paste) and a Cuban sandwich filled with slow-roasted pork at this cedar-walled café.

THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Chickenbone Cafe Restaurant Review

: Chef-owner Zakary Pelaccio has lived and worked in places like Thailand and Mexico, so it’s no surprise to find such globe-hopping specials as Malaysian kang kung (greens sautéed with shrimp paste), a Cuban sandwich filled with slow-roasted pork, and a savory Savoyard tartiflette. But Pelaccio can also stick close to home, doing his best to use ingredients from local purveyors: the smoked fish, mozzarella, and gelato are made by neighborhood old-timers. Eating at his cedar-walled café is a culinary joy ride with flavors as big as the bill is miraculously small.
