Dinner Menu

La Cucina Povera is an Italian phrase that means “cooking of the poor,” or “peasant cooking.” On a deeper level, it reflects a necessary philosophy that is common in all cultures: Making do with what you have to transform humble ingredients into dishes that are more than the sum of their parts. Reservations are recommended.
