The menu at Bar Mezzana in the Ink Block is coastal Italian, which in this case apparently means lots of crudo. On any given night you can find at least a dozen different kinds there, along with pastas that have ingredients like madeira, fennel, orange, and chili. It’s a picey place with a stylish dining room, but it has a great tasting menu that’s relatively affordable at $52.
