North & Navy de­parts from its reg­u­lar menu for Sun­day din­ner to serve Ital­ian com­fort food. The small menu in­cludes chef ’s choice an­tipasti op­tions for the ta­ble, hearty mains such as Vene­tian liver and onions, as well as Sun­day Gravy. What’s Sun­day Gravy, you ask? The hearty meat sauce fea­tures a tomato base with choice cuts of meat (a re­cent visit saw melt-in-your-mouth pork belly, fen­nel sausage, and meat­balls) in a heap­ing bowl of pasta. To re­ally re­lax, go for the chef ’s choice, which gives you the op­por­tu­nity to sim­ply sit back and eat what comes to the ta­ble. Our ta­ble of four elected to go this way, and we en­joyed mista and Cae­sar sal­ads, fried On­tario smelts, warm olives, as­para­gus with pick­led car­rots and a zesty vinai­grette, eg­g­plant Parme­san, along with the Sun­day Gravy. You may barely have room, but dessert (silky tiramisu, gra­zie mille) is worth it. Don’t for­get to bring Nona! She eats for free. $38 per per­son for chef ’s choice (à la carte items $5-$21). KS
