I went last night to the new place.. It was just ehh.. Homemade pasta with some sort of pesto sauce with mussels and baby scallops. Wife had a fish with a tomato sauce, Miss K had spaghetti with clam sauce. .We had a root vegetable salad and a 30 dollar bottle of wine. With tip, dinner was 140 bucks.Fairly outrageous for not only the inexpensive ingredients used but, the simple preparation of everything. Simple food, complicated pricing.
It was very reminiscent of exactly what I make at home for 20 bucks (maybe). Don't get me wrong, the food was good. Not spectacular but, certainly good. The space is tiny, service was friendly
That being said, if it is going to be as expensive as Locando Vini e Olli, I don't see what the point of this place is. The food is nowhere near as authentic, creative, or delicious.
This place should be a lot less expensive than it is. I wish them luck. Clinton Hill cute with fancy pricing.

There is a cocktail bar attached to the back of this restaurant. We hung out there and had a couple of drinks. Cocktails are 10 bucks. Muddled fruit and what not. I had a couple of beers. Greenport and Sumin Sumin on Tap.. A few other nice looking beers as well. It's a tiny little room, local spot, nice bartender. I am pretty happy about this place as it's muy serca a mi casa.
