Claudio Urciuoli’s ethos is simple: “I don’t believe in expensive food,” he told our dining critic. As the name of the Epicenter at Agritopia restaurant implies, Urciuoli and business partner Akshat Sethi are focused on sourcing the very best ingredients while still offering a reasonably priced evening out. The kitchen lets the ingredients shine and makes plates that are stunningly simple and satisfying — grilled dates paired with parmesan and house-made bread; a chopped salad; pizzas with great chew and toppings such pistachio pesto that can be rich and comforting. Source is worthy of a casual weeknight dinner or a date night — and, with a well-edited selection of bottles, pantry items and fresh bakes, you can take a bit of Source home with you, too.
