Accepted/Not Necessary


Among the many bells and whistles Creme Design has installed in the once-drab Loside space are couches with arms that go up and down like movie theater seats, and chalkboard walls in the bathroom for erasable graffiti. The seating lends itself to groups or couples who don’t mind communal tables (this will be a go-to for girl’s night out), but the best seats in the house, you might agree, are the four bar stools located on the sidewalk, at the concrete bar. Bizarrely, your back is to Houston Street, but the people-watching inside of the restaurant compensates, and you’ve got a prime view of Junior Marino’s bartenders making haute blender drinks such as the one made with avocado, honey, agave nectar, and mescal. Check out the cocktail list, and of course the menu—this is the kind of place where a pisco sour seems like a boring thing to order.
