This one of my absolute favorite bars in NYC. It's a real hole-in-the-wall, with great old-world atmosphere and stiff drinks. This reminds of Little Italy in the early 1970's....and that'a good thing compared to the tourist wasteland that is Little Italy today. Every mob picture ever made has a scene from this place. If you ever go on one of those NY pub crawls that hits the obvious old stops (White Horse, Pete's, Fanneli, Minetta, etc.), be sure to add this glorius representation of old-school charm to your list.
