Pillowy Soft Gnocchi + An Italian Social Club-Turned-Speakeasy Make for the “Sopranos” Night of Your Dreams
We love Frankies 457 Spuntino for its homey, lived-in feel that makes it one of the best restaurants in the neighborhood (the pillowy soft gnocchi doesn’t hurt, either). If you love what you ate, you can buy four of the special oils they use in all of their cooking—from their classic extra virgin olive oil to their Sicilian grapeseed oil.
After, check out Brooklyn Social Bar, located in the former Society Riposto. With a refined ambiance that harkens back to the days when the space served as a private Sicilian Club, Brooklyn Social offers impeccable cocktails, cozy corner booths, and Duke Ellington on the jukebox. Play a round of pool, explore the framed photos of mobsters of a bygone era, or take your drinks outside to the back patio—this is where you want to be tonight.
