Cacio e Vino
At Cacio e Vino, chefs craft a menu of authentic Sicilian specialties made from fresh, imported regional ingredients such as bronte pistachios and giarratana onions mined from the Iblei Mountains. Small plates such as baked Mediterranean sardines mingle with entrees such as veal stuffed with bread, raisins, and primo sale cheese and a sommelier remains on hand to match meals with delicious inebriants from the wine bar. Cacio e Vino facilitates a festive, familial atmosphere with frequent events such as wine tastings, prix-fixe dinners, and parties for special occasions. Inside this rustic Italian eatery, exposed-brick walls and wine-bottle-lined moldings invoke images of a Sicilian countryside, while candlelit tables offer views of a roaring fire in the open oven.
