A Taste of Venetian Cuisine at Bacaro
Bacaro’s wine bar and small plates (“cichetti”) are modeled after the “bacaros” of Venice—workingmen’s pubs that serve snacks and small glasses of wine.Some of the reliable favorites on its dinner menu include baccala mantecato (codfish with polenta) and pollo alla milanese (fried chicken cutlets).
Owner, Kama Geary, has now been running Bacaro for ten years and is still as enthusiastic and welcoming to her customers as ever, which makes it no surprise as to why customers keep on coming back.
Bring a date and enjoy the candlelit European feel of the restaurant, where the windows open during the summer and the nights gets more intimate in its underground labyrinth.
Visit BACARO at 136 DIVISION St, New York, NY 10002.
