Baking maven Sarabeth Levine adds an 11th location—the largest at 9,360 square feet—to her ever-growing empire of charming homestyle eateries. Along with Sarabeth's signature unfussy fare (root-beer-glazed short ribs, bourbon-braised pork belly), the high-ceilinged space revs up the late-night program of bar bites and cocktails. The sleek, 18-seat marble bar plies pickled Bloody Marys and elderflower-infused champagne lemonade, which you can soak up with chickpea fries, beef tartare and raspberry bread pudding in the plush striped banquettes.
