But the emerging Cortex District just south, home to tech incubators and Microsoft’s new regional headquarters, is attracting some of the most innovative concepts, including the farm-to-table restaurant, Vicia. Chef Michael Gallina and his wife, Tara, worked at the prestigious Blue Hill at Stone Barns in New York, he as a chef, she as a service manager, before moving back to his hometown. They set up Vicia in a newly built, glass-walled corner spot, showcasing locally grown produce in dishes such as zucchini steak, farm egg with wheat berries and mini mushroom tacos using thinly sliced turnips in place of tortillas. It’s earnest and refined, but not stuffy.
