A brick storefront in Bishop Arts is home to the second act of David and Jennifer Uygur, the couple behind the tiny, cult Italian spot Lucia, just a block away. The menu here ventures far beyond Italy, but at its heart it’s all about meat, especially salumi. David Uygur cures everything from finocchiona with wild fennel to basturma of Texas Wagyu beef tongue. The three daily house-made breads are consistently delicious. The menu changes frequently, but keep an eye out for the luscious chicken liver mousse, gnoccho fritto, underblade steak and tomato salad. Bitter-edged cocktails and a short-but-surprising wine list complete the makings for a fine evening, whether you snag a reservation for a table or take a seat at the bar or outdoors, where space is reserved for walk-ins. --Michalene Busico/Restaurant Critic
