The same people behind the LaSalle and Trio restaurant groups now introduce Stanza Italian Bistro & Wine Bar, an upscale and stunning re-envisionment of Faustina in the same location. The contemporary menu is rooted in Italian classics and is complimented by the ultra-modern interior. The octopus and lamb carpaccio on the small-plates menu is superb, as well as the traditional gnocchi (with green garlic pesto, peas and asparagus) from the pasta section. Choosing a wine or spirit from their sizable list can be an ordeal, but beverage director and City Weekly’s “Best Booze Guy” (2013) James Santangelo has your back. For dessert, the port ice cream is sensational.
