Tucked into the lush courtyard of the Soho Beach House, Cecconi’s is the kind of place you’ll go for lunch and want to linger through sunset cocktails. Tiny lights are wrapped around the branches of the buttonwood trees overhead, small Edison bulbs hang from the wooden beams, and the flooring is a Nile-green-and-white-striped tile. And the food is consistently fantastic: The truffle pizza with goat cheese and zucchini blossom is worth the splurge; the garganelli Bolognese is always a solid bet. From Tuesdays through Saturdays, Cecconi’s has a delightful aperitivi hour.
