For soulful Italian food with a modern streak, look no further than Gabe and Katherine Thompson’s small but commanding empire of hip downtown restaurants. We’ve invited this husband-and-wife team to prepare a menu of their properties’ signature fare, paired with exquisite wines chosen by their talented partner, Joe Campanale.
