ViceVersa is on the pricier side, but they do have a good Happy Hour. Come here for some upscale Italian or a quiet daytime martini at the bar. Grab some pasta in the backyard, and you might even consider making a repeat visit when you’re not already in the area for work or to see a show. Seeing as it’s in Midtown, you probably won’t do this. But it was a nice thing to say.
