At the Times yesterday, Florence Fabricant gushes about the wine bar-cafe:
Here’s a stunning bar and trattoria with Old World bronze-trimmed elegance that outclasses its East Village location.
As the Times notes, Baci e Vendetta is the work of the group that "creates themed bars," including Kingston Hall and Shoolbred’s on Second Avenue.
This space was the 10 Degrees Bistro until the fall of 2015 ... and the Flea Market Cafe before that.
