Joe Campanale and chef Erin Shambura, both late of L’Artusi, transformed the former Franny’s space with Venetian-plastered walls, a travertine-and-marble bar, and terrazzo-inlaid tables, but the restaurant’s culinary mission echoes its predecessor’s: celebrating (mostly) Italian wine and regional Italian food made with local, seasonal ingredients. Bear in mind there’s no pizza; instead, Shambura puts the wood-burning ovens to use for entrées like black sea bass with tomato-braised Tuscan kale. Pastas are housemade, seafood is East Coast and wild, and a standing bar accommodates drinkers snacking on the kind of cicchetti Shambura savored in the bacari of the Veneto. On the wine side, Campanale favors the organic, biodynamic, and light-to-medium-bodied, and borrowed smart ideas from lists he admires: Most bottles are available by the half, too (extraction by Coravin helps with preservation), and markups on Champagnes and other big-ticket bottles are modest enough to encourage regular consumption.
