Have a seat at the bar with a view of the wood-burning oven at Urbana Restaurant and Wine Bar, and cave in to the craving for the pizzas that bubble and bake over the hypnotic flames. From there, move on to Italian specialties like mushroom arancini with romesco sauce or braised rabbit over hand-cut pappardelle. Not willing to commit to a full meal? Stop in during the 4 to 7 p.m. “apertif” hour, when specialty cocktails and Italian wines by the glass are all less than $5. Even the Secretary of the Treasury would approve.
