The sexy Middle Eastern decor of this deep, narrow shoebox of a room offers an alluring change from the sticky-floored, beer-and-TV party bars crowding Bleecker Street. Votive candles flicker along the walls, and fresh rose petals are scattered about. Specialty cocktails—like the tart-sweet guava—are lusciously tropical, though their $10 price tag is a bit expensive in an area known for cheap pints and $2 falafels.
