The Brutos team opened this more casual, drink-focused cave à manger next door in June 2021. You’ll find a similar crowd—families with young kids when they open at 5pm, chain-smoking twentysomethings later in the evening—all chatting around tiny round cabaret tables on the sidewalk. The menu here has things like the tapioca cheeseballs that were a hit at Brutos, and buttery but crispy gnocchi with peas and pesto. The wine list is predominantly French, plus has a few international hits, like a €39 liter of gruner from the Czech Republic that goes down like water.
