This addition to Frank Prisinzano"s team of well-priced eateries (Frank, Lil" Frankie"s Pizza) proves that a good dinner can be an uncomplicated affair. The decor has a grown-up feel, with rustic wooden tables, antique chandeliers and a supersleek private dining room in the basement wine vault. Yet simplicity rules the menu. An appetizer of coaster-size beet slices and silky goat cheese pieces is a collision of exquisite flavors. Main courses allow the freshness of each ingredient to shine: linguine with butter and fresh mint; gnocchi with tomato sauce; spaghetti with lemon and Parmesan. Salmon tagliata, two seared hunks atop arugula, is accented by a light fava-bean puree. Food this cheap and cheerful means you won"t have any problem cleaning your plate.
