The new eatery was packed on a snow-bound night this weekend. And the kitchen provides more than a few reasons to venture out at all in this lousy weather. The fork-tender pork osso buco and short rib of beef are two hearty, warming main dishes to brace you for the next snowstorm. You could begin with an equally husky opener: mellow baby back ribs. And the tiramisu is especially rich.
