From 2010: It changes daily, so you never know what chef Sean Weinberg will be highlighting, but you can rest assured that the $15-per-person antipasto starter will be a stunning five- to six-item tasting of cheeses, veggies, seafood and/or meats.

From 2013: Forget peanuts. Bar patrons at Restaurant Alba eat like kings — olives stuffed with goat cheese or sausage; bruschetta of mortadella and hen's egg: roasted pear with Gorgonzola, honey and rosemary. Craving a burger? Try their version, with prime beef, wood-roasted onions, house-made ketchup and hand-cut spuds.

Best Italian, 2014: Alba owner Sean Weinberg’s hands-on culinary education in Northern Italy shines most prominently in his rustically transcendent seasonal, contemporary dishes. Don’t miss the pappardelle with ultra-rich wild-boar ragù.

From 2015: Five seasonal selections put the focus on local, farm-fresh produce, meat, cheese and honey. Each substantial slice of grilled bread makes a hearty appetizer for one. Try all five for just $17, and call it a meal.

Best Snack Menu 2016: Top-notch contemporary cuisine made with seasonal ingredients makes Alba’s Lazy Afternoon Menu one of the best deals around. Nibble on goat-cheese-stuffed dates and other enticing selections as you sip a drink from the carefully procured and well-stocked bar.
