BDG's project Verace, an Italian restaurant in Islip situated next to Teller's Chophouse, moves forward, heading toward its goal of opening before the new year. The interior finishes, a mix of rustic and modern, are beginning to be installed. I especially love the color and texture of the metal tube surrounding the oven. Fabricated to fit the space, the form is softened by the patina on its surface. As I look back to the raw spaces in earlier entries, it is almost hard to believe it's the same building.
