Dinner Feast at il Buco Alimentari – NYC

Chef Smillie, who oversaw the kitchen when I last visited, has moved on to his own (Stephen Starr-sponsored) place, and I haven’t been back since, but my last meal (sometime in 2014) at il Buco Alimentari was delicious.  Some of the dishes are now making an appearance at Chef Smilie’s new spot, so all is not lost.

Olives.
