On a beautiful summery day last weekend, we went with friends-that-are-family to Bar Pisellino , a bar that I had read about and was so excited to try out. If you know me, I have been obsessed with Aperol Spritzes  for the past 12 months, and Bar Pisellino not only serves them, but has them on TAP. YUP — Aperol ON DRAFT.
Bar Pisellino opened up this past month by James Beard Foundation Best New York City Chefs Jody Williams and Rita Sodi. They own Buvette , I Sodi , Via Carota , and now Bar Pisellino. All four restaurants are within a three-block West Village radius. A big fan of Buvette, I knew that I would not be disappointed with Bar Pisellino. Sure enough, the atmosphere, drinks, and vibe were great and left me so happy that we went.
I can’t wait to return to Bar Pisellino — definitely worth going to before or after dinner to have a nice evening drink! If you live uptown, it is worth trekking down to the West Village and spending an hour there.
