Hg2 : The Hedonist

Locanda Vini e Olii

Tucked away on a residential street in Clinton Hill, Locanda is the kind of place you are either implored to check out by a devoted friend or stumble upon in the happiest of accidents. However you get there doesn’t particularly matter, because once you do you’ll be entranced by Milan-born Francois and Catherine Louey’s Tuscan treasure, Peasant’s Frank DeCarlo is.

Housed in 130-year-old former apothecary, readily apparent and utterly charming by the sign that still lingers above the front door, and when you step inside and see the old glass cabinets, counter, and filing draws, you will always find Louey, be-shoed in Converse high-tops, zipping around the room making sure you’ve selected just the right bottle of wine from the list written on a bottle that sits on your table or recommending specials like dreamy beet gnocchi with walnuts and a just-right amount gorgonzola cheese.
