Tuscan Grille

Look for a revamped menu at this Italian ristorante—it comes straight from Chef Gallagher. He’s tempting taste buds with homemade pasta, artisanal salumi and cheeses, and prime dry-aged steaks. Sip house-made limoncello and choose from a wine list dedicated to the wine-growing regions of Italy.
