Find this pretty sliver of a place hidden between Clinton Street’s frenetic bars and superhip eateries. The simple environs—gold walls and 22 seats—offer a haven for locals seeking well-priced vino and seriously good small plates. Dishes are grouped into “finger” and “fork” categories—standouts include sweet and saucy BBQ duck and meltingly tender Wagyu beef encrusted in zesty chimichurri.
