Long before organic was a buzz industry, chef Giancarla Bodoni recognized its merits for achieving the ultimate in fine dining, despite her overlooked gem’s rustic direction and decor. The authentic Italian menu—including five and seven-course tastings with or without wine pairings—abounds with organic ingredients that change seasonally.
The local fare is also fun for foodies to deconstruct, since dishes present daringly layered flavors. Consciousness comes with a price however, which explains her well-heeled clientele.
An insider tip: call in advance for her raw food tastings, which hold the power to convert meat and cheese lovers to vegans, at least for the night.
