Chef-partner Cesare Casella (Maremma) has a deviously selfish reason for opening this new Italian meat market and restaurant on the Upper West Side: "It's four blocks from my home!" he laughs, adding that because of the area's high concentration of gourmet stores like Fairway and Citarella, "it's easy for me to explain the quality of my product." And those products? Artisanal meats like pancetta, speck, coppa and, of course, salami-available for takeout at the deli counter up front, or as small plates from the restaurant at back. On the menu: savory bites (Chianti-braised beef brisket), greens (roasted Brussels sprouts), plus a selection of Italian wines. And nope, you're not hallucinating: Old faves from the now-shuttered Maremma make a cameo, including Casella's wild-boar chocolate ragu. (
