Gennaro’s is a restaurant, sure — this Italian spot has been slinging red-sauce pasta and pizza for more than sixty years. But it truly shines as a superlative neighborhood bar, where crimson stools dot the checkered floors as inebriated locals take in cover bands, half-heartedly participate in trivia night or adjourn to the back patio for a smoke.

From classic dives to modern cocktail lounges and neighborhood watering holes, these are the top places in town to imbibe.

On a snowy day (or any day, really), nothing is quite as good as a piping hot bowl of French onion soup. Rich broth paired with melty cheese is the kind of comforting combo that will make you forget all about how many layers you need to put on before you can step outside.

Comfort food at its best.
