Sip Zesty Cocktails Before an Italian Dinner in a Restored Pharmacy
Start your night at SISTERS, a lively neighborhood restaurant whose interior looks fresh out of the pages of Architectural Digest. Choose from the selection of interesting cocktails—we like Parliament of Owls (with Boukman rum, pasubio vino amaro, and tamarind cordial) and the aptly named Hundred Hand Slap (jalapeno-infused tequila, ginger, cardamom bitters)—as you people-watch from the bar.
As day transitions to dusk, wander over to Locanda Vini for Tuscan-inspired fare. Located in a restored 130-year-old Clinton Hill pharmacy, fully outfitted with sliding ladders and apothecary drawers, this northern Italian restaurant is not only deliciously authentic but also overflowing with charm. Consider doing a double-date here—they offer a 4-course tasting menu for $55, available for parties of 4 or more. Also, the trattoria was featured on the Food Network’s “Best Thing I Ever Ate” for their duck breast with fruit compote.
