Sasha Miranda and husband Mauricio Miranda thought they’d found the ideal location for “Miranda,” the Williamsburg, Brooklyn restaurant they opened in 2007. The building was once home to a pre-prohibition saloon and a popular neighborhood bakery.
The term “home cooking” is bandied about a lot in the restaurant industry – often a little too loosely. But at Ornella Trattoria Italiana in Astoria, Queens, you can take the claim literally.
Proprietors Ornella and Giuseppe Viterale just opened their restaurant and their menu is based on dishes they both enjoyed growing up in Italy.
