It's the time of year when light-, vegetable-driven fare seems like the only thing palatable to put back, so it's fitting that tonight Felice Wine Bar opens a second location. The Sant Ambroeus cousin heads farther up the UES to another Robert McKinley–designed space, debuting a whole passel of dishes not found on 64th Street. There's a fritto misto with chopped asparagus, eggplant, carrot, and zucchini; a shrimp crostone laced with veggies, herbs, and jalepeños; and, if you're craving heartier fare, L’Hamburger, a short-rib patty topped with pickled onions and provolone. Scope those out in our slideshow (along with some photos of the space), and see the full lineup of dishes below.
