Cucina Tredici Aprile

Inside and out, they've created a rustic retreat in the heart of the city. Cucina Tredici Aprile is simple and casual, but it's a proper little restaurant (and certainly not a trattoria). Hidaka spent a year in Sicily, and the Mediterranean influences are strong, from the whitewashed walls and scrubbed wood floors to the well-patinated wooden chairs drawn up to crisp white tablecloths.
