A lunch counter for the new millennium, Barbacco's best seats are stools along the open kitchen. Otherwise, seating is at communal tables lining the exposed-brick wall. Plan to share earthy-delicious small plates – fried brussels sprouts, bruschetta of house-cured sardines and lemon-aioli egg salad, and chicken thighs braised with olives. For a splashier meal, book its next-door upmarket sister Perbacco.

Barbacco's iPad wine list is annoying (don't downtowners go out to lunch to get away from their screens?) but includes 3oz pours at fair prices, allowing you to taste multiple varietals without going broke.
