Tom Douglas—who's done the pizza thing at Serious Pie and perfected pretzels for Brave Horse Tavern—rolls out his pasta shtick for Cuoco, an upscale Italian restaurant that trusts its patrons won't be scared off by duck gizzards or uneasy with an all-Italian wine list. Many of the pastas are stupendous: The delicate lasagna, layered with béchamel and a faintly tannic Bolognese, justly surged with pride at transcending its potluck reputation. And there's much to like about a lark of a calamari preparation, featuring spicy sausage looped through pliable rings of bronzed squid and plated with fat cannellini beans.
