THIS RESTAURANT HAS CHANGED NAMES Il Bastardo Restaurant Review

: This Italian restaurant’s setting is futuristically-rustic; if fact, you may be more into the décor at first than the menu. Once you tear yourself away from the views and the trendy faces, you’ll enjoy the equally pleasing Italian fare. From the antipasti options, nosh on tender grilled mushroom caps filled with Gorgonzola, mozzarella and bread crumbs or the pepper-crusted tuna with frisée, ginger mustard and olive tapenade. For pasta, the penne alla puttanesca of tomato, capers, black olives and anchovy sauce is a winner. Carnivores can dine on the breast of duck in a Madeira wine reduction, served with radicchio risotto cake.
