The team behind subterranean drinkery Home Sweet Home looked to Paris as inspiration for this Lower East Side spot. Café decor—gray leather banquettes and blue wood tables—outfits the 60-seat bar, named after Rrose Sélavy (alter ego of French artist Marcel Duchamp). At a 20-seat marble counter, slurp East and West Coast oysters while sipping cocktails like the Fresh Widow (spiced rye whiskey, coconut syrup, Creole bitters) and the Belle Haleine (gin, Byrrh and vanilla bean). Also on offer: a rotating selection of Gallic wines (Château Ducasse, Wilfrid Rousse) and craft beers (Saison Dupont, Flying Dog).
