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).
