Donning a pale palette with marble surfaces and an open kitchen, Faun is a welcoming, intimate and tranquil dining retreat. Furnished with a long bar that's ideal for socializing, the space also flaunts a charming backyard—the kind that diners clamor for on warm days.
The kitchen turns out a wonderful, well-priced menu, featuring ample options. Diners can begin by digging into homemade focaccia or crisp marrow "arancini" poised atop a fava bean pureé and coddled with trout roe. Handcrafted pastas like the cresta di gallo nero may look dark but sport a light and saline tomato sauce studded with seafood and capers. For dessert, a soft vanilla bean-panna cotta is served with a crunchy pumpkin-seed cracker for perfect symmetry and flavor.- MICHELIN guide inspectors
