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 stripped antique Nile-green tile. The food is consistently good too: truffle pizza with goat cheese and zucchini blossom is worth the splurge, the garganelli Bolognese is a solid bet, as is the ahi tuna tartare. From Tuesdays through Saturdays they offer an awesome apertivo hour, too.
