Flying Piggy's Bistro Italiano
The cherubic, winged pig on the sign at Flying Piggy's Bistro Italiano grins at passersby; it's a smile you might crack were you holding onto a delicious secret. Of course, delicious secrets are exactly what you'd find if you finagled your way into the kitchen. There, chefs handcraft ravioli and gnocchi one at a time, infusing them with the flavors of fresh-from-the-market ingredients. They also douse sea scallops in a creamy basil and white wine sauce, and sauté veal medallions to tender perfection. Like wedding guests during a long-winded toast, other cooks focus largely on the desserts, preparing new kinds of cheesecake daily alongside staples such as lemon tortes and creme brulee.
This bounty of Italian cuisine comes with a cozy atmosphere. Dark wood and warm soft lighting do as much to fend off a chilly night as the crackling fire, the central feature of the new veranda room.
