The staff show the same cheerful investment in Fired Up as Busone himself, and can talk you through the particulars of any menu item. Inside, the space is split between an open section of tables and booths and a bar that wraps around to the extensive patio (the large glass sliding doors are often flung open to let the outside in, and misters work to cool the coming summer heat). The walls are painted soft golds and maroons, and the complimentary decor blends with the restaurant's dark woods. A flatscreen above the bar is tuned to sports.
The Cost: Two appetizers and two glasses of wine (a list of $4.50's) will cost you just under $20 before tip.
