Lusty Italian, great bread, bring your own wine

A couple of things make this restaurant special. 1) The oval bread topped with caramelized onions, roasted figs, pecans, rosemary and garlic can almost serve as a meal—order it as soon as you sit down because it takes about 10 minutes to make. 2) Bring your own wine (BYOB!) to enjoy the guilty pleasure that comes from drinking a bottle of Italian barolo with one of the meatiest lasagnas in town. The restaurant's grill menu is worth exploring, starting with the corn-crusted trout served with a crab-and-shrimp enchilada. For something sturdier, try the rib-eye steak with peppercorn sauce or the cult favorite, cinnamon-coffee-and-cumin-crusted pork tenderloin. Cooked medium-rare, it comes with a lush sweet potato corn pudding and smoked red onion sauce.
