If you think you’re too cool to drink an appletini, you’re wrong. No one’s too cool for an appletini. Also, the version at Bar Americano is fantastic. This little Greenpoint spot was inspired by the aperitivo bars of Spain and Northern Italy, but the menu doesn’t always stay on theme. In addition to anchovies, vermouth, and a variety of European wines, they serve a burger, a house margarita, and the aforementioned appletini (which actually tastes like apples). Bring a date, share a fried chicken sandwich, and spend an hour or two in the candlelit room that features stucco walls, brass accents, and a few leather booths. You can make a reservation online, or you can try to snag a few seats at the U-shaped bar.
