Il Bastardo

Most restaurants come alive on the weekends, but Il Bastardo is special. “In New York there are party brunches everywhere,” according to those who keep count of such things. “If I had it my way, I’d gladly eat every meal dancing on my chair and with a DJ booth in the corner,” said Ally on Bitches Who Brunch (she rated her visit, in 2014, an “A-“). With plenty of music and other delights (generous pours, sparkling mimosas, “dancers in full showgirl garb”) Il Bastardo is packed all day Saturday and Sunday. Not unexpectedly, it takes a unique approach to its wine list. “The one thing I remember is that their wines had great descriptions,” said the fan of my work who commissioned this drawing. “In fact, I think the one we drank on our first date may have been described as having the smell of a freshly opened can of tennis balls. We thought that was hilarious.” (191 Seventh Ave. 212-675-5980.)
