The offspring of il Buco on Bond Street, the Alimentari & Vineria is as much a production outpost of the original – specializing in house-cured meats and home baked breads – as it is a casual dining experience in its own right. Here at the original site of the Great Jones Lumber Supply, owner Donna Lennard set out to fulfill a dream of the last 18 years.
In addition to the house made salumi, cheese plates and home baked breads from the alimentari, a list of tasty appetizers incorporates many of the wonderful delicacies imported from Italy with local, market ingredients. Housemade and artisan pastas are reminiscent of Italian trattoria fare, and entrees from the rotisserie and wood burning oven such as peppercorn roasted short ribs and porchetta. House made sorbets and gelatos are the highlights of the dessert menu.
