Superstar chef Mario Batali devotes his Southern Italian–inspired establishment to pescatory delights and other fresh-from-the-sea fare. Soak up the sun in the pastoral outdoor patio with a plate of pristine crudo, the Italian version of sashimi, or park yourself at one of the indoor tables in the butter-hued space for whole John Dory roasted in a salt crust. Rustic treats like buckwheat crepes topped with smooth buffalo ricotta mousse and huckleberries go swimmingly well with the ocean-centric menu.
