Casa Apicii is a very nice spot for dinner, but the bar hidden upstairs might be even better. It feels like a little library you’d find in an obscenely wealthy person’s home - but with dimmer lighting and candles and someone making $17 drinks in the corner. And if that doesn’t sound appealing to you, just know that you’re wrong. This is a place to impress someone before or after dinner - though they serve snacks from the Casa Apicii kitchen if you feel like sticking around for a while.
