Cicchetti, the Italian-style snack bar across the courtyard from Serafina (and run by the same people), has started a happy hour. Hooray. It’s Tuesday through Saturday from 5 to 7pm. There are seven food items ranging from $1 (Moroccan-spiced popcorn) to $6, (pizza of the day). I like the sound of Greek-style fries with feta yogurt, that’s $4.
Drinkwise, you’ve got processo and house reds and whites for $5, beers for $3, and “premium wells” for $4.50, but most exciting is a $5 list of specialty cocktails. (They make great drinks at Cicchetti and Serafina.)
The drinks are the Isole: vodka, hibiscus syrup, lemon, iced tea; the Gin Bustle: gin, Dubonnet rouge, orange, lemon, orange flower water, prosecco; the Pleasantly Peach: vodka, lillet, peach purée, Angostura bitters; and the Cicchetti Sangria: rosé, Oloroso sherry, grapefruit, lemon, lavender Dry Soda.
