Some of the cooking techniques that chef Jim Anile honed as a child while working in his family's restaurant still define his cooking style. He's well versed in various cuisines and has helmed the kitchens at a range of upscale restaurants, including, most recently, Il Palio in Chapel Hill. At L'Uva, his new rustic-modern restaurant, he chooses to focus solely on traditional Italian dishes, inspired by the sort of fare one might find in small Italian villages. Anile designs a new menu every week, but always uses local ingredients and focuses on simple preparations. To complement this culinary theme, L’Uva limits its wine list to small-batch Italian bottles. Bartenders pour these by the glass or mix them into wine cocktails.
