Restaurants, Eclectic Carroll Gardens

Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

This Carroll Gardens spot, located in a former video store, has traded its DVD racks for romantic Victorian-inspired decor—tapestries, thick rugs and mismatched lamps. It’s an odd design choice for an Italian trattoria, but the plush chairs and elegant wraparound bar are perfectly comfortable places to graze on the menu of well-executed snacks. Steer clear of the doughy pizza; better bets include crisp panini (serrano and Manchego, prosciutto with fresh mozzarella), bruschette topped with a pleasingly salty olive tapenade, or crunchy fennel-orange salad. The wine list is international and refreshingly cheap: About $10 buys one of a dozen quartini.
