The Overview

Rustic Italian cuisine gets a showing at Pesto Autentico, where an open kitchen marked by bottles of olive oil looks out onto a contemporary dining room that invites guests to eat as a family. To design the menu, owner Dennis Soendoro brought in traditionalist Neapolitan chef Mikko Mastrogiacomo, who puts a Mediterranean spin on mains—thin spaghetti with eggplant and paprika; rolled-zucchini gamberi—and offers breads, pastas and desserts made from scratch. Don't miss the Margarita, a crisp, thin-crust pie sturdy enough to hold up the generous layer of cheese and basil (folding not required), or the cognac- and espresso-soaked tiramisu that's bound to knock your socks off.
