Dishes We Dug: “Pizza 16” (prosciutto, sopressata, roasted red peppers) at Local 16, 72-hour braised sous vide short rib at Cava Mezze; honey- and spice-glazed duck breast at Proof.

Dishes We Didn’t: Low-country cioppino at Eatonville. A bit bland. Get the house sausages or grilled lamb porterhouse instead.
