Il Mulino New York has been a long-beloved Washington Square Park spot for a splurge-worthy meal, and its more casual, cheaper, and much louder little sister has a comfortable vibe, younger demographic, and more of a neighborhood atmosphere. Here, a rustic-cum-minimal décor with exposed lightbulbs and thick tabletops add to the energy (and lively acoustics), and the Italian food is straightforward and hearty. Delightful appetizers include the well-seasoned and quite large ricotta meatballs, savory grilled octopus, and gently fried calamari “piccante” in a mildly spicy tomato sauce. There's also a nice selection of raw-bar items (including oysters to lobster) and a long list of successful pizzas, including the mushroom-loaded and fresh-tasting fungi, and the “quaglia” with caramelized onion and quail egg. Slightly less impressive is an entrée of prime-aged rib-eye, but the accompanying crispy, shoestring-style truffle fries are surprisingly light and delicious. The wine list isn't a focal point at Trattoria Il Mulino, but creative cocktails like the “Flatiron Rossini” with St. George raspberry Eaux de Vie, St. George liquer, fresh raspberries, lemon, and prosecco are playful.
