Fiola, From Fabio

“Trattoria moderna” Fiola is the new home for Beard-winner Fabio Trabocchi. Rosewood, rough stone, curved white booths and fine-art photos envelop the rustic spaces and 50-seat bar. Special: four-course bar menu ($48), 13-layer lasagna packed with veal, prosciutto and parmigiano-reggiano, short ribs with cipollini and lemon-verbena gelato. Pre-theater menu ($35, Monday through Thursday, 5:30-6:30 pm) features salad, entrée, dessert. Regulars tout the 150 Italian wines, 12 proseccos and bottled beers from the boot (Peroni, Moretti, Baladin).
