Geoffrey Tracy—owner of the Chef Geoff’s restaurants—opened this 5,700-square-foot contemporary Italian eatery in 2006. Mesquite tile floors, wine-bottle chandeliers, and a large glass-and-steel wine display distinguish the 150-seat space. A bar area and a private dining room each seat 50; an outdoor patio offers an additional 100 seats.
