This lively Italian restaurant from Nancy Silverton, Mario Batali, and Joseph Bastianich, is located next door to popular sister establishment, Pizzeria Mozza. The burrata from Basilicata with bacon, marinated escarole, and caramelized shallots and the orecchiette with sausage and Swiss chard are worth braving the perpetually busy reservation line. Silverton is usually found behind the mozzarella bar, serving customers on the dozen stools surrounding her. Chef Matt Molina expertly prepares the rest of the brash Italian-country menu. Order the ricotta-and-egg raviolo in brown butter; whole fish wrapped in grape leaves.
