The team behind NoLita’s Epistrophy Cafe brings homemade pasta, fresh seafood and other timeless Italian fare to this charming spot on Greenpoint’s main drag. Jazzy live acts perform on a tiny stage at the back of the narrow space decked out with checkered floors, communal tables and a small bar.

The cocktail list is short and classic, with drinks around $11, and the bar is comfortable and pleasantly backlit by a clouded mirror studded with star-like lights. I sometimes find that I mentally rank spaces like these by how badly they make me wish I could still spend long nights smoking inside at them, and this bar gets pretty high marks there. Seating beyond the bar falls into three categories: long communal tables, small marble two-tops built in along the wall, and exceptionally nice semi-separated marble-topped booths built for four. The two of us decadently spread out at one of the latter….The food menu has a lot to offer. Instead of tired prerequisites (as in, there’s no high-concept burger) we get a menu with lots of fish dishes and vegetables – this restaurant is perfectly tuned to the pescatarian.
