Hours:MONClosed

This Little Italy newcomer is both a wine and dessert bar that works great for drinks, a late afternoon snack, or for a nightcap after dinner. The decor has a hint of Art Deco: think rounded banquettes, hidden corners for sweet talk, and long counters around and behind the bar. The menu is always changing, with the recent introduction of a tasting menu that includes vegan options, but we’re still thinking about two dishes: the sweet and salty daisy tart with curry ice cream and prune liqueur and gravlax with tempura shiso, trout eggs, and lime vodka granita. Choose whatever inspires you from late afternoon to late night, mixing and matching starting with savory and ending with sweets (or the other way around).
