For some unknown reason, this Mediterranean gem has remained largely undiscovered. And that's a good thing for those who are quite aware of its charms—they don't have to book weeks in advance for a pre-theater reservation. Once you get past the bar where fruit-infused martinis keeps the area hopping, you have your choice of the lovely, intimate indoor dining room with plush seats and paintings of dancing nudes on the burgundy walls or, if the weather is nice, dining outside in the restaurant's spectacular brick-walled garden featuring hanging lamps and a Granny Smith apple tree. Wherever you choose to dine, the food, all of it organic, more than complements the setting. If you desire a pre-dinner martini, the trio of bruschettas, tomato, spicy eggplant, and a rich, black olive tapenade, is the perfect accompaniment. The country salad, frisée with slices of apple, bits of bacon, toasted pine nuts, and gorgonzola, in a sherry-walnut dressing couldn't taste better—even if you don't eat it under the Granny Smith apple tree. The chef is not shy about adding spice to his dishes—the penne infused with red peppers is testament to that—but the addition of raisins and ricotta salata to the dish nicely offsets the heat.
