Saraghina Caffè

If Dekalb Avenue between Vanderbilt and Fort Greene Park were the neighborhood's hottest club, the outdoor seating at Saraghina Caffe would be the best table in the house. That’s not to discount the dining room: the high ceilings and green marble bar are an excellent setting for cappuccino in the morning, or dinner with visiting parents who appreciate an Italian red alongside their pappardelle. But the sidewalk is where you should lounge with a negroni or a spritz and not worry how long you’ve been there, while listening to a dog bark, a baby cry, or perhaps both at the same time. Maybe you’ll order a pizza and the evening will turn into dinner, and maybe it won’t—nobody really seems to care.
