Profile

Peasant is exactly right. From its stunningly backlit brick-walled kitchen that features only open-fire cooking to its incredibly appealing pan-Italian menu, chef-owner Frank De Carlo has reason to bust his buttons every night, and you have almost too many reasons to undo a couple of yours. I like the little bowl of sweet ricotta cheese served gratis to the rowdy food scholars in the house, and I'm also partial to the brick-oven-baked rabbit, stewed in cannellini beans with salty strips of pancetta, and the perfectly oval pizza bianca pooled with olive oil.

Extra

Thanks to some added soundproofing, you no longer need to shout to get your share of impeccably al dente pastas.

Recommended Dishes

Rabbit with fava beans, $24; bistecca alla Fiorentina, $39
