City Pulse

Cucina Ciano opened on November 11 with a farm-to-fork inspired menu that features the best of both Northern and Southern Italy fare. Executive Chef Tin Huynh (who was sous-chef at Ciano, Cucina Ciano’s downtown predecessor) has concocted a menu that includes everything from veal meatballs, balsamic glazed octopus, and fresh frisee salads to Tuscan ragout. Magnifico!

In addition to tasty dishes, an extensive wine list, and dangerously delicious cocktails, the restaurant also has an art gallery, with small exhibits changing year-round. First up is a collection of the whimsical works of acclaimed artist Hunt Slonem. The beautifully decorated space also has free Wi-Fi and a private dining room perfect for intimate gatherings.

With food, art, and ample vino rosso, Cucina Ciano promises to be your new favorite way to get an Italian fix when you don’t have time to go on a real Roman holiday.
