Bacaro – New York City
In New York City and looking for a cute and romantic restaurant for dinner? I’ve found the perfect spot in Lower East Side. During my last trip to New York I discovered this super romantic Italian restaurant. When walking to the restaurant and crossing China Town I got a bit worried. Truth needs to be said China Town is not the most appealing area. Bacaro is located right on the edge of this area in a very small street. Division Street is like the Fata Morgana of China Town, several cozy restaurants and bars are located on this street.
The bar is upstairs, and the restaurant downstairs in the wine cellar, decorated with large chandeliers, brick stone walls, small wooden tables and candle light. The menu is full of delicious classic Italian dishes. Starters they serve are their famous daily crostini (depending on the season), fried oysters, salads or a cheese and cured meats plate. Favorite pasta dishes are the whole wheat pasta with duck ragu, spaghetti con vongole or the spaghetti nero with cuttlefish ink. And for grilled fish or steak you are also in the right place. The wine list is picked by the restaurant-partner Kamy Geary and he is happy to advise you. Also ask him for the spicy martini.
Funny fact, some celebrities spotted at Bacaro are Jennifer Lawrence and Katy Perry.
