No. 246 creates a crisp appearance with its white-washed walls that throw the contrasting dark wood tables and rustic pizza-paddle wall décor into sharp relief. Large overhead metal lights hang from the ceiling, perfectly illuminating the bar and the center seating. A basket of giant, fresh baguettes flaunts themselves on the wall by the waiter's station. If you come for brunch, you'll notice the number of pizzas (topped with bacon, potato, poached eggs, and cheese) that spring from the kitchen. Dinner here would call for an order of the well-flavored Agnolotti which is served with a healthy side of greens or the gnocchi.
