Funky Tom Dixon lighting and rustic wood paneling and antler chandeliers set the scene at chef Salvatore Cuomo's hip outpost inside the Jia hotel. Despite the haute hunting lodge feel, Cuomo's brand of Italian food is ultra traditionalthe chef even imported copper-clad wood-burning ovens from Italy for his perfect thin-crust Neapolitan pizza. Start with a sampling of antipasti before tucking into grilled New Zealand lamb chops with garlic confit.
Tip: On Sundays, convivial brunches have family-style platters of antipasti and pastas—and copious amounts of prosecco (entrées, $28$45).
