About Albert Di Meglio

Barano is South Williamsburg’s wood fired seasonal Italian restaurant by Chef Albert Di Meglio. An alumnus of Le Cirque and Osteria del Circo, but most recently, at Rubirosa, he mined the culinary memories of his Italian-American childhood on Staten Island, which inspired the concept of his restaurant.
