This haven for natural wine and housemade pasta wasted no time setting up sidewalk structures. Before the restaurant opened for dinner service, people could pay $25 a day to work in these open-air structures (with heat lamps when needed), use the electricity and wifi and enjoy unlimited coffee and water.
Partner and Co-Beverage Director Alexis Percival says that limited purchasing power during the pandemic helped the team see the wine list in a new light.
“We tightened up our concept to not just Adriatic, but more imaginatively took inspiration from the former Venetian Republic,” she says. “This was the key to being able to make sense of the regional food and wine affected by the former trade routes. Suddenly the wine list could expand logically to Crete and Coastal Greece, all the way back west to the Veneto and beyond.”
