Wine plays a significant part in the dining experience at Carnevino, so it’s only natural for the restaurant to have a bar. Celebrity chef Mario Batali and restaurateur Joe Bastianich have teamed up to bring you the best in meat and wine, and the Italian steakhouse even goes so far as to include a special “Taverna and bar” menu that lets you enjoy bits of the Three-Star cuisine from lunch hours through late night. The wine list offers hundreds of selections from around the world—a departure for a Batali-Bastianich venture, as the pair generally sticks with Italian vino — and a slew of scotches, grappas, amari and other fine spirits round out the menu.
A handful of signature cocktails give you just another reason to check Carnevino out — sip on a Honeyed Ginger Ale, a mix of Wild Turkey “American Honey” bourbon liqueur, ginger beer and fresh ginger, or the blood orange cosmo, a blend of Ketel One Citron vodka, blood orange juice, Cointreau and lime juice. When you want a drink to go with that porterhouse, Carnevino’s bar can mix up something that will hit the spot.
