Old school, good vibes and very New York. Imagine an Italian café in 1920s New York. The establishment opened its doors in 1915 by immigrants. Since then, it has seen writers, politicians, musicians, Al Pacino, Bob Dylan and even Ernest Hemingway. The café reopened in 2015 and quickly became a popular place for its atmosphere and cocktails.
On the menu, simple and good food: fresh pasta, panini, salads, cold meats. For dessert: tiramisu and cannoli of course!
But the star of the place is the selection of cocktails: different Negroni (including one on tap), Campari and Spritz, Italian classics, but of course also American classics: Old Fashioned, Americano …
The place is always very busy. In 2019 it was named the best bar in the world. With a little luck, you can quickly find a seat and start your aperitivo.
PLAN B: During the pandemic, you can even order take-out cocktails.
