Dumbo Snack Bar
Raca Cafe and Bar’s loss was Dumbo Snack Bar’s gain. The cozy back patio at what was once Ivana Raca’s first solo outing as a chef is now, in the hands of proprietor Nick Peach, a full-blown party spot complete with fire pit, pop-up bar and a jampacked events calendar (including movie screenings and silent disco nights). Your best bet for drinks: Teapot cocktails, served in oddball vintage pots sourced from the restaurant’s patrons, which are potent enough to make even an elephant feel like it’s flying. Oh, and the kitchen’s open until 2 am!
