Inspired by the "North of Little Italy" neighborhood of Manhattan?which is lined with quaint and authentic family-owned restaurants?Nolita Ristorante serves up classic Italian cuisine alongside an extensive craft beer selection at a contemporary bar, featuring 24 taps and a myriad of specialty cocktails. The impressive menu lists off a plethora of dishes, each composed with a nod toward sustainability, such as fresh produce and meats that are locally sourced whenever possible. Tender shrimp ravioli are tossed in a saffron cream sauce, while a bone-in pork chop is plated alongside a crispy polenta cake and sweet grilled peaches.

The mood is lively and laid-back within Cuv?e's sleek dining rooms, where guests lounge on cushy red armchairs at intimate candlelit tables. They raise thin flutes of champagne and glasses of specialty martinis over small plates of citrusy seafood ceviche, plump Italian meatballs, and fresh sushi rolls. Others linger over last bites of strawberry cheesecake, a dessert that reporters from NECN lauded as ?simple, light and creamy.?
