This roomy hideaway is among Little Italy’s better-kept secrets. The decor skews corporate—striped-fabric banquettes and mirrored splash backs—but the place has soul; the wooden ceiling has been restored from the restaurant’s speakeasy days. The American menu dabbles in other cuisines with dishes like a thick cut of sesame-crusted tuna with wasabi vinaigrette and Asian vegetables; the dessert menu plays it straight with an ever-popular molten chocolate cake.
