Scott Carsberg's Venetian-inspired restaurant, a more casual, small-plated successor of his famed Lampreia, closed in 2012. I still think about the skinned tomato stuffed with halibut rillettes I had on my very first visit—packing all the visual fanfare and technique of the room's fine dining days, but not out of place eaten at the long bar that dominated the room after its casual, post-Lampreia makeover.
Now, Bisato is back. At least for a few nights. The James Beard–winning chef took to Facebook this week to share plans to recreate the restaurant on seven upcoming nights: December 9, 10, 16, 17, 23, 30, and 31. Dinner will consist of a five- or six-course meal with pairings. Other details, like location, are clad in secrecy. Which is by design, since there are just 20 seats per night.

And if you don't snag a seat, I think we'll be seeing more of this chef in the future.
