Anticipation is the ultimate pleasure—especially when this spring opening promises an Italian escape after another monotonous winter. Transporting guests to a custom-designed Italian villa is A Street Hospitality’s La Padrona, helmed by James Beard Award-winning chef Jody Adams and executive chef Amarilys Colon. The space features nods to Gae Aulenti and Golden-Era Italian cinema glamour through stunning lighting and bespoke furniture with lush fabrics and upholstery. Whether you plant yourself at the ground-floor bar and lounge or ascend the grand staircase to their second-floor restaurant, a warm and eclectic experience awaits. Regional classics rooted in fresh ingredients from Italy and New England will dot the menu: Think housemade pasta, local seafood, humanely-raised meats, farm herbs and vegetables, salumi and artisan cheeses. Spring can’t come soon enough.
