Expect red-sauce favorites at this quirky 62-seat corner joint—decorated with checkered tablecloths, animal-print wallpaper and shrines to Jimi Hendrix—from Cafe Gitane owner Luc Levy. Alongside pastas (ricotta-spinach ravioli, strozzapreti bolognese) and pizzas (artichoke-Taleggio, anchovy-raisin), entrées include Sicilian baccalà and braised Milanese beef cheeks. Italian beer such as Birra Normale and Baladin Nora are on offer at the 17-foot-long bar, while the cocktail list is heavy on Fernet Branca in quaffs like the Ace High (applejack, Cocchi Vermouth di Torino, maraschino) and a Livorno Fizz (rum, Galliano, egg white).

It's official. I just found my new neighborhood haunt. This place is finally open after like two years or so of construction and I couldn't be more pleased to have it in the area. I've been twice now since it opened and have walked away happy each time. The food is great and the vibe in there is a welcome change to some of the places that have popped up around town. Laid back and welcoming. Very cool. Will be glad when they open for lunch as I also work around the corner.
