This venue is closed.

The Bastianiches aren't the only ones with a Friuli fixation. This handsome two-level restaurant features dishes inspired by that region like polenta and sauteed John Dory in brodetto, not to mention Friulian wines and plenty of prosciutto di San Daniele. As explained on the menu, the legend of the Barbaluc (a kind of elfin spirit of vino who resides inside your wineglass) sounds like something out of The Lost Weekend, but that hasn't deterred the Ciprianiesque crowd already packing the chic upstairs bar.
