From the crew behind Osteria Langhe, Animale is a unique fast-casual restaurant that's changing the way we think about service. The staff rotates its duties, so the same people who cook your food will be serving it behind the counter another day. Revolving around Italian street food, the menu includes panini with house-made pancetta, meat dishes like bacon-wrapped sweet breads and rabbit liver, and arancini rice balls.
