Think of this large, tucked-away, and notably sexy bar and restaurant just off Union Square as a rooftop bar at ground level. The steep prices correspond with the chic-rooftop notion (and the bar is cash-only), but you’re sure to find the young and the beautiful convened at the courtyard’s wooden tables on temperate nights. Even blustery eves see plenty of action at the long bar and lounge area. Because it’s as much a restaurant as it is a place-to-be bar, it’s easy to find yourself popping by for a drink, making new friends, and staying for dinner. That said, food is not the main draw here.
