Wine bar by day, espresso bar by night, this tiny East Village restaurant serves up Italian-inspired fare to community-style tables under the theme of the American seventies. A giant metal "Amoco Gas" sign hangs on exposed brick above the bench where you'll order a “wooden board” of cold cuts called the Laguna Seca. Yes, there’s charcuterie on this menu, and it's named after a Monteray Raceway. Mix that with the Daytona selection of cheeses, which changes weekly: the brie, goat, and provolone selection drizzled in crushed nuts and honey-base syrup is served with rosemary focaccia, and you will forgive the clashing motifs when your food is served. The rest of the menu includes sandwiches named after, you guessed it, seventies rock stars. Choose from the Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Elvis Presley, or the staff-recommended Chuck Berry, with parma prosciutto, Holland tomatoes, and basil. For something sweet, finish with the cheesecake—it’s topped with seasonal berries.Recommended Dishes
