The Bindery is a sprawling, sunny restaurant in LoHi that bills itself as an all-day eatery and marketplace, selling coffee and pastries from a counter and serving a menu that’s heavily influenced by Italy from morning to night. Why Italian? Chef/owner Linda Hampsten Fox lived and worked in Italy for decades, and her elegant dinner menu reflects her intimate knowledge of the country. Don’t miss happy hour’s prosciutto-wrapped grissini and the hand-cut pappardelle with meats that change with the seasons — sometimes braised boar, sometimes lamb. But the menu ranges farther afield than Italia, with Mexican and New American influences that reflect experiences throughout Hampsten-Fox’s nearly thirty-year career, as well as her penchant for unusual proteins — tuna ribs and rabbit, for example — and brash flavor combinations.
