An early proponent of the tiny Italian sandwich, the original Bar Veloce squeezes considerable style and substance into a small area with well-crafted panini and tramezzini washed down with easy-drinking wines that mostly sell for less than $10 a glass. But the Chelsea outpost has something its long, skinny East Village sibling lacks: space. And should one inexplicably tire of drinking Italian wine, there's now a choice of grappas, amaros, and even sake—a perfect match for the anchovy-and-mozzarella house bruschetta.
