As a member of the entrenched Bamonte’s clan, Nicole Giannone bridges two culinary epochs in Williamsburg—its red-sauce past, as epitomized by her family’s 106-year-old eponymous restaurant, and its wine-bar present. Recently, she, her husband Peter Giannone, and her uncle Bill Haenlen converted Bamonte’s bakery offshoot into n.6, a cozy enoteca serving a familiar menu of panini and tramezzini made with ingredients from local purveyors like Napoli Bakery and Emily’s Pork Store. It’s the kind of simple, snacky food the Giannones like to eat when they go out—groundbreaking, no; satisfying (and affordable), yes. And the hipster-free hospitality is a refreshing change of pace. The owners have preserved the bakery’s original tile floor and vintage ceiling fans, and turned its butcher-block workstation into a bar, achieving an artfully aged patina that befuddles the old-timers who pop in looking for biscotti and discover bruschetta instead.
