Il Buco Alimentari & Vineria, NYC

After running the celebrated Il Buco for nearly 20 years, its owners decided it was time to launch a sister restaurant. Along came Il Buco Alimentari & Vineria—and heaps of praise. The New York Times awarded the lively spot three stars and included it on its list of the best openings of 2012.
