In the ever-expanding world of meal-delivery services, it's tough to stand out. Chef Daniele Baliani, a veteran of Le Cirque, San Domenico, and Boston's Pignoli, realized that food is his best advertisement. At My Befana, Baliani has combined a production kitchen with a twenty-seat storefront serving his seasonal Mediterranean fare to stay, to go, and, ideally, to tempt customers to sign up online for home or office delivery. Drawing on Italian, Spanish, and French influences, Baliani offers passersby a daily changing assortment of whatever he's cooking for his meal-plan clientsófrom short-rib stew bourguignonne to pork tenderloin au poivre.
