Emporio on Mott St.
Great food. Nice staff. Solid happy hour.
They've got a beer and wine license, which is all they were ever going to apply for given their proximity to the nearby school.
We caught the "second round free" happy hour that came with some tasty snacks on the bar.
Then we ordered a tripe appetizer, vegetable puree soup and malfatti pasta with sausage that were all excellent.
