Aperi Bar by Charlie Palmer Collective has opened at the LUMA Hotel in the heart of Times Square. Aperi, short for apertivo, is an Italian tradition where you relax with nice glass of wine or Campari after a hard day’s work. There are cocktails like the AperiSpritz (aperol, prosecco, grapefruit, club soda); Italian Butterfly (grapefruit vodka, campari, grapefruit); and Charlie’s Negroni (gin, sweet vermouth, campari, aperol).
From the kitchen comes small plates, including assorted cheeses with figs and salumi with pickled eggplant and ciabatta; breaded swordfish, calabrian chili, caper brown butter, and arugula; and seared marinated prime sirloin, tomato confit, lemon potatoes. Pizza and pasta dishes are also available. Desserts include a strawberry tart, biscotti and olive oil gelato with a pine nut crunch.
The Aperi Bar is located at 120 West 41st St, New York, NY (212) 730-8900
