Much like the apartments that surround this Lower East Side secret, Grotto is what a broker would tout as cozy. With its small underground location, this spot knows how to utilize their limitations; it’s like the Josh Hartnett of restaurants. What Grotto lacks in square footage is made up by being spatially economical. The three long, narrow sections each pack food, booze, and hip locals into modern and elegant spaces. Stop by for dinner and stay all night as the DJ mixes hipster-friendly beats and Biggie. Bartenders dance in front of a large selection of liquors and mix up classic specials like lychee martinis and caipirinhas. In warm weather, the backyard garden is a key make out spot for horny LESers. With places to eat, mingle, and dance, Grotto proves that it’s not the size that matters, but how you use it.
