Market feels more like a bumping apartment party than an Italian restaurant. Apart from the lively crowd and great nu-disco playlist, this dimly lit aperitivo spot serves small plates with a solid cocktail menu featuring lots of amari. Market might not be the beachside restaurant you had in mind, but instead a place to feel seen by tables of well-dressed people somehow managing to carry a conversation over the blaring music. The fresh pasta is the main attraction here, including a perfectly al dente strozzapreti in a nutty white pesto sauce, but what really steals the show is the saucy steamed mussel toast with a saffron-infused sofrito.
