Verde Wine Bar
Rustic, romantic, and intimate, Verde Wine Bar is considered a gem by locals, so it's unsurprising that it has quickly gained wider acclaim. The restaurant was voted top of the food, service, and wine-list categories by OpenTable users, and it earned a "Very Good" rating from the New York Times, which particularly lauded the caring servers and diners' excellent odds of ordering a great entree.
Under the sparkling-pressed tin ceiling, couples and groups gather around bottles of wine. Before the main event, they snack on pulled-chicken arancini or meat and cheese boards decorated with condiments of raw honey, eggplant capanatta, and chocolate. Seek out the larger plates for a clear Italian influence, from a classic cavatelli bolognese to the Old-World lasagna.
