Taralucci e Vino is a mini chain of all-day Italian cafes with a few locations in Manhattan, including this one near Union Square. You can stop by in the morning and grab some eggs or an Italian pastry, or you can come by after work and have a glass of wine and maybe some pasta. Think of this place as a nicer, Italian Le Pain Quotidien, one where you could conceivably bring some coworkers or a date.
