Bar Umbriago

Venue Info

Known For

Wine

Italian

Not all song titles are fit to be restaurant names ("I'm hungry, anyone want to go to Meat Plow?"), but Bar Umbriago, a 160-seat enoteca named for a '50s Jimmy Durante tune, is doing OK. With Edison bulbs hanging over their solid-wood bar, Italianate touches include floor-to-ceiling wine cabinets, and tiles reclaimed from century-old Italian churches, which thankfully don't come with disapproving looks about what you and your girlfriend will be doing after dinner (psst... it's SEX!).
