“We’ve stepped into spring with seasonal dishes that are a little lighter and perfect to enjoy on our sunny patios,” said Chef Christopher Vera-Tudela of Davanti Enoteca in Little Italy. “Staples like our Focaccia di Recco and Seared Octopus are here to stay, but freshly picked produce and fish and shellfish sourced straight from the ocean are the main attractions this time of year.”
