Fish-roe emporium Caviarteria is behind this chandelier-clad subterranean drinkery, dedicated to champagne, jazz and—obviously—caviar. A grand piano is parked in the corner for live music on Fridays and Saturdays, while the neon-lit mahogany bar offers bubbly-based cocktails like the Dolce Vita (vodka, Grand Marnier, elderflower) and a vodka martini garnished with trout roe. Caviar (kaluga, sturgeon) is served by the ounce with mini blini and crème fraîche, or choose from platters like smoked salmon or foie gras with sliced onions and toast points.
