scene: Survival of the fittest... or hungriest. Find small groups and weekend couples galore!
sip: Did I mention the Bloody Mary menu with 10 variations?
savor: Not one thing, even the macerated fruit with mint, sounds bad to me. The Monte Cristo can change your life, and they hand old Alka Seltzer at the door for a reason...
sit: Apparently there's a downstairs room with a communal table, but the group that went down there right before had the highest pitched voices ever. The upstairs room is tiny, and the seats at the front are key on a nice day.
scene: Cozy front room with private nooks for larger tables; larger back room with retractable roof for al fresco dining in the summer and fireplace dining in the colder months; tables in the bar area get a little loud and a decent amount of traffic walking by
sip: mainly italian wine list; don't expect much help from the waitstaff with the vino, but each wine has some descriptive wording below for you to better figure out what you want
savor: hot stuffed peppers; trofie al proscuitto; Dora's meatballs; chicken
sit: this is a great date place, and also good for large groups
address: 240 West 14th Street, between 7th and 8th
