Italian food lovers, rejoice. Vincenti chef Nicola Mastronardi is still cooking from his elegant regular menu, turning out impeccably tender roasted octopus and crisp fried calamari as well as comforting pastas such as sausage-rapini orecchiette and ricotta-spinach ravioli.https://www.instagram.com/p/B-k8EnDnzQF/
Those with larger appetites can order the Jidori chicken stewed with tomatoes, black olives, and onions or the New York steak served with green beans, potatoes, and black truffles. No hugs from owner Maureen Vincenti right now, so air kisses will have to do.
