You can come by for lunch from 11am-3pm, a limited snack menu from 3-5pm, and dinner from 5-10pm. And to celebrate, a new tradition will be Fiorentina Mondays, offering a seared bistecca for two people—the T-bone steak is coming from Dogpatch neighbor Olivier’s Butchery. Wine director Danny DeMartini will be putting together a small reserve list with some great steak pairings, by the glass and bottle.
