After spending the past few years consulting for restaurants like the Tonic and restaurateurs like Bette Midler, chef Frank Crispo (formerly of Zeppole and Chefs Cuisiniers Club) has finally landed a stove of his own — one formerly employed by the previous tenant, kosher caterer Lou G. Siegel. At Crispo, the chef-owner has dispensed with the gefilte fish, focusing instead on Italian-Mediterranean fare like dandelion-greens salad, crab agnolotti, and sautéed skate with asparagus and grapefruit. But he kept the mezuzahs for luck.
