Justin Smillie first charmed New Yorkers at the helm of Il Buco Alimentari, where he earned a rave reviews from critics and delighted diners. Now at Upland, chef Smillie has incorporated his native-born Californian sensibilities into a hyper-seasonal menu of rustic, yet thoughtfully conceived plates. (Take his fried hen-of-the-woods mushroom dish, for example: it arrives on the plate relatively unadorned—just a giant hedgehog pile of funghi atop a smear of herbed Cloumage cheese—but each crispy bite is mind-blowingly good.) To accompany the meal, choose a bottle from the restaurant's extensive (and diverse) wine list, which also includes several excellent wines available by the glass.
