WildCraft got the makeover it needed after it ditched the casual pizzeria vibe and decided to grow up a little when it soft opened on August 23. Under the direction of chef/owner Tin Vuong, Jed Sanford, and new executive chef Bryant Wigger (previously of Trattoris Neapolis), WildCraft adjusts their menu to reflect a Northern Italian sensibility. The previous colorful interior was scrapped away for this more modern, classic dining room that feels a bit more sophisticated.

On the menu, think fried whitebait antipasti, salumi, and plenty of rustic seafood and meat dishes inspired by Piedmont. The wood-fired pizza remains on the menu, however, with bacon fontina and a truffle-laden pie still on deck. Another nifty add-on: full liquor, which means Italian-inspired cocktails to wash it all down.
