Three Bells for Jersey Shore BYOB

Craig LaBan lavishes praise on Luke Palladino, an Italian BYOB outside of Atlantic City.

I especially loved the dishes with Palladino’s stylish twists – like the tender flat-iron steak “braciole,” the beef pinwheeled around a garlicky green stuffing of herbs and pecorino that gets seared to order rather than braised to death; or the meaty fillet of grilled cobia touched with fennel pollen that came splashed in a light blood-orange vinaigrette with piquant Ligurian olives; or the crispy crespelle filled with wild mushrooms suspended in a flow of oozing Taleggio.
