The carpaccio appetizer-a large platter caked with carpaccio-is preposterously delightful and, at $11.95, a steal of a meal. Both shaved and chunky, the soft morsels are complemented by zingy lemon and capers, fresh-shaved Parmesan, artichoke hearts, and salad bits. Other Italian platters are excellent, but the carpaccio is like a beef-flavored Listerine strip for the gut.
