Albert Di Meglio

Barano, Brooklyn, NY

When Rubirosa opened in 2010, this cozy neighborhood gem reinvigorated Manhattan’s Little Italy with its fresh takes on classic red-sauce fare. Join us at this delectable lunch, where chef Albert Di Meglio, formerly of Osteria del Circo and Olana, will put his personal stamp on homey Italian favorites.
