“Anima Cucina is going to be a different sort of concept as a restaurant. Inspired by several of our favorite places during our time in Italy, it’ll be a “little bit of everything” like many of the wonderful cafes and restaurants there: coffee bar, deli/lunch/dinner, wine bar. The biggest thing to be aware of is that we won’t have traditional table service. Instead, it will be counter based. You’ll be able to come up and talk to a knowledgeable and well-trained staff member about the phenomenal wines, beers, and products we’ll have available. Grab a bottle of wine, relax, enjoy time together and some amazing food. Live life a little slower.”
