Sarto means “tailor” in Italian, and when owners Taylor and Kajsa Swallow opened the space in fall 2014, they explored that very concept with the cicchetti bar; it sets the restaurant apart with small plates tailor-made to guests' preferences. Start with an Aperol or Campari spritzer; you’ll be primed for the drink after seeing the red bottles set like pop art on white shelves above the bar. Move on to prosciutto di Parma, grilled octopus or a grilled-romaine salad before settling in with heartier fare such as seared duck breast, polenta-crusted pork, housemade pastas, or even a wedge of lasagna that would make mama proud. There's nothing homey about the dining room, though; cool whites and soothing grays with splashes of red make for an elegant ambience.
