There bizarrely hasn't been much buzz on the newly opened venture between Paolo Cesaro (Hidden, Via Veneto) and Partner/Chef Antonio Mure's (Piccolo, La Botte, Locanda Veneta) newest rustic Italian abode, Ado. Located in Venice near the corner of Main and Abbott Kinney, the duo took over the former Amuse space and, about three weeks ago, turned it into a small quaint and homey eatery sure to be jam-packed once the masses find it. Guests enter through a kitchen-esque area, then mount stairs to level two where most dining takes place. Earthy brown walls, exposed wooden beams, and simple wooden chairs lend an air of casual and understated sophistication that is the expected child of a Piccolo-Via Veneto union. The menu embodies the space in taste; a rustic fine dining hybrid with dishes like beet tagliolini in marsala quail ragu, and wild boar tenderloin with a white port-raspberry sauce, and they just acquired their liquor license three days ago.
