Bacaro

bacaro11This wine bar-slash-restaurant and once aquarium is tucked away in the nether regions of Chinatown.  Bacaro are what are known in Italy as workingman’s tapas or “cichetti” bars. The romantic and almost whimsical nooks and crannies in the low-lit bottom cellar are fun for wandering. You can even book their quasi secret and hidden private room. The look is very similar to Peasant’s cellar, a restaurant which is also owned by Bacaro’s owner/chef.  The wine list, which is from Veneto and neighboring northern regions of Italy is a tad pricey. The “ombra” (the Venetian name for a tiny glass) start at $7 (nothing working-class about that).

Hours: Tue-Sun, 6pm-midnight; Mon, closed
