Ado was a neighborhood stalwart for Venice before it closed quietly last month for a quick changeover, reopening on November 30. The new concept is Barrique, with chef Antonio Mure still at the helm but with new partner Tony Black helping to run the show. Ado favorites like tuna tartare and beet taglioline are remain on the menu, but the rest of the offerings are completely new, with a heavy Italian slant throughout.

Think smoked pink trout with potato blini and salmon roe, watercress salad with pecorino cheese, handmade fettucine with ragu, and grilled branzino atop braised onions in a blood orange sauce. With the name coming from the French term for barrel, there's a strong emphasis on wine, as well as an elegant new look inspired by actual wine barrels. The renovation included an expanded patio area, a place that'll come in handy for day time diners once the weather warms up.

Hours run 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. for lunch, and 5:30 to 10:30 p.m. for dinner, daily.
