Opening Alert: Faro Brings High-Minded Local Italian to Bushwick

A wood-fired oven in a warehouse space.

Northeast Kingdom vet Kevin Adey and his wife Debbie Adey (formerly of Jean Georges) will start cooking their modern Italian-meets-Brooklyn menu tonight at Faro. The airy warehouse space has been tricked out with a wood-fired oven that will be used for baking bread and roasting dishes like porgy, served with peas and bottarga and emmer. The prices are pretty reasonable — nothing on the menu, even the entrees, goes for over $20.

The Menu: The seasonally rotating menu features house-made pastas, like egg pacchieri with pork bolognese and ramps, and some less traditional/more modern Brooklyn dishes like skate wings with cracked rice and anchovy, and sweet pea porridge with morels, local grains, and whey. With a note on the menu about farm suppliers, there's a pretty clear focus on local and sustainable dairy, meats, and seafood here.

As for the drinks, Justin Lane Briggs came up with the selection of house cocktails that run the gamut from serious and boozy, to more refreshing choices like the Archangel — Greenhook gin, Contratto vermouth, and cucumber.
