First-time owner Michael Carpinillo spent a year and a half doing a gut renovation of the old Le Streghe space on West Broadway (lucky for him, his family works in construction). That gave his chef, Bruce Dillon, a former head toque at Suba, plenty of time to experiment with Italian cuisine before the restaurant opened in early 2009. Carpinillo says some of the dishes arenÂ’t Italian so much as Italian-inspired: Â“The rigatoni is kind of like what Italian families would eat on Sunday, but he covers it with fonduta.Â” The bar offers Italian wines as well as lesser-known craft beers from the region, and the coffee is custom-blended by DÂ’Amicos in Brooklyn.
