The Denton brothers have finally finished their remake of Bar Milano a call to the restaurant confirms that the bar at 'inoteca and liquiri bar opens at 5:30 p.m. (right now!) and dinner starts at 6 p.m. Only a small number of tables are set aside for reservations, so you shouldnt have too much trouble walking in (of course, dont quote us on that). Expect a newly rustic interior more in keeping with Lower East Side sibling inoteca, and a menu thats also more or less the same with a couple of additions. As you can see on Menupages, theres an added selection of spiendini (skewers) and a variety of primi, such as baked rigatoni with cauliflower and tagliatelle con ragu. As with the Rivington Street location, dinner is served till 3 a.m. If youre still having trouble choosing between the two, keep in mind that the new place is licensed to serve the hard stuff.
