Before it became home to The Underground in 1997, the restaurant and bar's turn-of-the-century building housed a teashop owned by Mike Tyson's former mother-in-law and a communist bookstore reportedly teeming with FBI agents. It's an appropriately eclectic history for a nightspot that has been a filming location for TV shows such as Law and Order and stages diverse acts almost nightly, from offbeat musicals and cabaret singers to burgeoning comics and jazz combos.
Melodies and laughter soar toward The Underground's arched brick ceilings, carrying all the way to the bar where, behind its handmade stone top, bartenders mix cocktails, pour wines, and supply beer by the tap, bottle, and can. Libations complement the kitchen's shareable snacks, which range from platters of cuban paninis or barbecue pulled-pork sandwiches to pizzas such as the gorgonzola apple, which chefs make by hand with fruit plucked from a gorgonzola apple tree.
