If you need a spot to go for your birthday before walking to Elmyr for a grizz or two, go to Il Localino. Besides serving some of the best pasta in the city, this place regularly plays loud disco music, has a ceiling covered in colorful paper lanterns, and gives you silly hats to wear that’ll make all of the photos from dinner just slightly better. The food’s great, they serve plenty of wine and cocktails, and there’ll be a few other birthdays going on around you whenever you go. This probably isn’t where you want to go on a random Wednesday, but Il Localino is the best place in the neighborhood to celebrate with a group.
