New Italian in the nabe. First night was last night. I expected it to be a little unorganized for first night and was only slightly but all's forgiven because the food and price will make this place a success. They have many small plates that really are what a normal amount a person should consume-not those big mamma mia red sauce joints types provide and what I had was perfect. Had the seafood mixed salad to start which was very fresh and not over salted which I really appreciated. The salmon tartare was a combination of smoked salmon and fresh salmon covered w an avocado puree and served w crostini type toasted bread. Since another party's Cesar looked so good I decided to try and it certainly was-very well seasoned and delightful combination of kale and romaine which gave the salad a lot of body so to speak. Our bartender was a perfect gentleman and efficient at serving and guiding us through the menu. I definitely give it two thumbs up and am delighted they are open in our neighborhood! The ONLY thing I dread is that it will become too popular!!
