Lardo, a sister restaurant to chef Elena Reygadas’s Rosetta and her bakeries, is especially warm and buzzy on sunny days, when the restaurant’s full façade of French doors is thrown open and its handsome crowd spills out. The kitchen applies all the chef’s singular refinements to a winning mix of Tuscan recipes that put special focus on fine charcuterie. Menu items are (perhaps deceptively) simple: poached eggs, seasoned variously; a nice selection of pizzas; fresh, vinegary salads that don’t go overboard; grilled shellfish. The complexity arises from their delicacy on the palate, where each crisp taste is savored separately—and as a part of the whole. A nice wine list encourages sobremesa, the delightful Mexican custom of lingering over the table. Breads—that come with your meal or that you take home from the on-site bakery—might be the best in the city.
