Fodor's Review

C&C, as locals know this Little Italy lounge, oozes slightly surreal cool. Crammed book shelves line the walls, banquettes and mirrors are scrawled with sayings, and taxidermy appears in odd settings, like the lion-skin rug on the ceiling. The management’s no-fear mind-set extends to the menu; ketchup and vodka have been outlawed here. But young fans and neighborhood residents who gather here after work find plenty to savor among the craft cocktails and snacks served by bearded bartenders in plaid shirts and suspenders. Dinner brings typical gastropub fare like fried chicken, mussels, and thick burgers and a not-so-typical dessert—the bacon ice-cream sandwich.
