Italian

Lettuce Entertain You continues its restaurant opening streak with il Porcellino, a home-y Italian trattoria that occupies the former Paris Club Bistro & Bar space. The rustic menu, a collaborative effort between chef/partner Doug Psaltis and chef de cuisine Aaron Martinez (recent chef-in-residence at the group’s Intro) keeps the emphasis on house-made pastas like rigatoni alla vodka and ricotta tortellini, focaccia pizzas, antipasti like fried Brussels sprouts and endive and parmesan, and bomboloni with whipped mascarpone, while an Italian-driven wine program, “multiple choice” Negroni, and a short-but-sweet craft cocktail selection complete the experience.
