You can assemble a gourmet picnic at this deli-diner, from a range of wines and counter ingredients, but the refined restaurant in the back is the main lure. Soft jazz provides the background as you navigate a menu that gives familiar ingredients a creative twist. Main courses might include pork filet cooked at low temperature and served in an orange sauce with beans wrapped in guanciale (cured pork cheek) or a flan di stracchino con salsiccia croccante (cheese soufflé with crisp-fried salami sausage). There’s a short, well-chosen range of red and white wines by the glass, plus a long list of dessert wines.
