Known for its delicious Neapolitan pizza, Verde also has a great cocktail program worth seeking out. There’s an added bonus in that anybody who pulls up to the bar can enjoy their delicious drink on a beautiful antique marble-topped wooden bar that has egg and dart-topped molding, long panels on its face, and one of those long troughs at the base. The back bar has a chalkboard with the specials outlined by wooden columns and more elaborately carved wood. It’s worth stopping by just to sip on a drink, take it all in, and ponder the history.
