Heading up the unmarked stairway behind the host stand at Casa Apicii and into a hidden library, you start to feel like you’ve stumbled upon a hidden lair. There’s a fireplace setting the mood and cushy velvet couches in the intimate space, which fits about 20. The drinks are overseen by Fabio Raffaelli, previously of Del Posto and Daniel, and they focus on Italian spirits, with an emphasis on aperitivo-style cocktails. Many things are made in house, like a thyme-infused polugar bread wine, which gives a savory punch to a take on a vodka sour. There are a few antipasti-style plates for snacking, since many guests are on their way to dinner downstairs, but it’s so cozy and romantic that those on a date might have a couple more Negronis and never make it to dinner at all.
