happy birthday dad.

it was my father's birthday yesterday (happy birthday dad) and what better way to celebrate than friday night in the city. my family is very artsy and hip. as you know we're all involved in the design industry so we like to explore restaurants with fantastic decor. food obviously is an important factor, but a fabulously designed atmosphere definitely heightens our ratings. if a friend raves about a restaurant, i always ask about the decor before recommending it to my family. bacaro was the restaurant of choice, located on division street on the lower east side. he had been there once before and describes it as a small, busy hipster restaurant. this doesn't sound very different from other places on the lower east side, but i did a bit of research and it looks awesome.

peasant chef/ owner, franco decarlo, opened this restaurant with exposed brick & stone, wooden rafters, and salvaged barn wood tables, creating little romantic nooks lit only by candles and few elegant chandeliers. it has sort of a speakeasy, tuscan vibe. describes bacaro like so..."if bruce wayne were italian and opened a restaurant in rural tuscany, bacaro might be what it would look like."
