Led by chef Louis Prpich, the kitchen wizards at Sugo Modern Italian Bistro conjure up lunch and dinner menus teeming with inventive takes on classic Italian cuisine. The chefs use fresh, seasonal ingredients when creating daily pasta dishes for the quick lunch ($7)—served with an italian salad, cup of soup, or stopwatch—and the hearty sandwiches ($8-9). For dinner, guests gnaw delicately on the beef carpaccio served with white truffle oil and sea salt arugula salad in a romano cannoli finished with chile and fig mostardo ($11) before debating the proper pronunciation of gnocchi in between bites of gnocchi ($16), which is handmade, tossed in a cream-and-tomato sauce, and definitely rhymes with boat. Dig into the two-course take on ossobucco ($19), beginning with roasted marrow and grilled ciabatta, and finishing with a root vegetable–stuffed veal shank and risotto milanese.
