This intimate Greenwich Village nook is a café by day and a beer-and-wine bar by night. In the a.m., find Ceci Cela pastries, wood-roasted Aneri espresso and Gillies Coffee drinks. When the sun sets, the rustic, brick-laden space turns into a candlelit date spot, serving 30 vinos by glass and 40 beers, with six on tap (Magic Hat #9, Long Hammer IPA). Chef Giordano Smiroldo (Altamarea Group) oversees a menu of charcuterie, cheese plates and panini, including grilled mushrooms with provolone and truffle oil, prosciutto di Parma with pear and mozzarella, and tuna with sun-dried tomatoes and almond pesto. High-top wooden tables, exposed-brick walls and stripped metal pillars decorate the space.

This super chill spot is awesome to post up at the bar and enjoy a few cocktails. The location is in the heart of the east village, which makes it the perfect spot to grab dinner (or grab drinks while you wait for dinner). They recently started accepting the Hooch app, so for $10/month, you can get 1 free drink there daily - not a bad deal. The bartenders are super friendly. I haven't tried the food yet, but it always looks delicious (this risotto I saw last time was really tempting me to order a second dinner... ).

I’ve only visited for a happy hour drink before getting dinner with friends, and it was perfect for just that. The special is solid ($4 draft beer), especially for the area. It’s a very relaxed, candlelit environment. If you’ve been to DTUT on the UES, it’s a very similar vibe.

I’d highly recommend for a first date or an intimate conversation and can only imagine that it makes a charming café during the day.
