Whether you’re looking to sip a cappuccino or a martini, pick up a few groceries or sit down for dinner, Il Buco Alimentari e Vineria has what you need. Brainchild of Donna Lennard, owner of the original Il Buco in the East Village, this spot came about as both a means of supplying the original restaurant with high-end, imported Italian goods and an opportunity for diners to sample authentic Italian dishes outside the formality of typical restaurants. 2013 Rising Star Chef Justin Smillie combines elements of farm-to-table cuisine with traditional Italian technique—from large format meat plates to house-made charcuterie and spot-on pasta. And though the soul of his dishes is all Italian, Smillie is ultimately a Manhattan chef, dipping his skillful hand into an international pantry to enliven one of the city’s most cherished cuisines.
