A little whisper here about Spes – Natural wine bar and Italian food. All women owned and the chef is a lady from Naples. We love it. We ate here twice now and both times we ended up having lengthy conversations about our longing for Italy. The owners and manager are very young Italian women from the Venice area and, as I mentioned, the chef is from Naples. Last night she came out and gave us recommendations for restaurants in Naples !!! so … we are dreaming of travelling again – post pandemic. But this place makes us feel like life post pandemic is possible. 413 East 12th street.
