As far as restaurants go, Spuntino is the cool little brother who dropped out of school, disappeared for a few years and resurfaced with tatts and an extremely cool personality. You come to Spuntino to relax with a burger and a cold beer, while pretending you’re Charles Bukowski. It’s an understatedly cool little restaurant in Soho with a US-diner vibe that doesn’t feel cheesy, good cocktails, and little plates of mac ‘n’ cheese and fried chicken you can share. It’s excellent as a drop in, spur-of-the-moment decision, or for a casual hang with a friend.
Spuntino is permanently closed.
