AWARD: Best New
Eating at the counter isn’t at the dime store when hero chef Jeannie Pierola is in command. She rebuilt a beloved coffeeshop to remake the everyday. Start in luxury with tilefish tartare or caramelized foie gras. Entrees focus on veggies, pasta and bincho and wood fire for fish, steaks and ratatouille. Brunch makes comfy cool: Macadamia pancakes and eggs bourguignon to shakshuka.
