If your idea of Italian restaurant food is limited to tomato-sauce-drowned spaghetti and meatballs the size of your fist, A Tavola will surprise you. The staples on the seasonal menu at this 60-seat trattoria — expertly run by NYC transplants Nathan and Bonnie Snow — are dishes like poached octopus with chickpeas, chicken roasted under a brick, and pappardelle served in a slow-cooked bolognese sauce that has to be tasted to be believed. The majority of the ingredients on your plate come from local farmers and purveyors; rustic but innovative, this is a meal you won’t soon forget.
