Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
Friends gather at this LES haven and its sister spots, always abuzz with chatter, to share great food and affordable wine. The truffled-egg toast is the signature dish, but salads and antipasti (tender grilled calamari with borlotti beans and fennel; dense, delicious meatballs) are equally compelling when paired with a bottle from the list of small-producer Italian wines. The tables are tightly packed—diners seeking privacy can gather six or more friends and reserve a seat in the downstairs wine cellar. At the Flatiron location, in addition to the usual panini, there are top-notch pastas (al dente calamari-like loops tossed with mussels, tomato and fennel), skewered meats and hearty mains (juicy chicken with chunky panzanella salad).
