Italy’s growing craft brewing reputation was the impetus for Marc Vetri’s contemporary birreria. The most walk-in friendly of Vetri’s establishments, it also works well for hard-drinking groups who prefer booze in their food, all the way from apps (housemade pretzel bites with spicy beer cheese) to dessert (Allagash White and orange sorbet creamsicle shakes).

What to drink
If you’re not in a beer place, they serve Negronis on tap and a short list of terrific wines.
The imports can get spendy, so alternate those with budget-priced rounds ($3 Fernet shots and Brooklyn cans are good starters).
