Take Me To Siena
We like our Mediterranean rustic and close to home.
As nice as it would be to jet over to Siena for some Italian fare, the newly opened restaurant in South Granville that bears this Tuscan city’s name will just have to do. This little gem is one of those trusty neighborhood joints that could serve as a casual go-to with a side of Mediterranean romance. Siena serves up a charming, rustic fare with salumi and cheese boards, appetizers like the chorizo stuffed grilled squid ($10), a selection of classic and not-so-classic pastas like steak and spaghetti ($17), all of which are being inducted into my endless list of guilty pleasures as we speak. —Anya Georgijevic
