Compass Rose

Compass Rose

Appears in 1 Collection

Compass Rose is dedicated to a global array of street food. The bar and restaurant from owner Rose Previte is known for its friendly, homey vibe, making it a gathering place and hub for neighborhood regulars. The bar, lined with tall, upholstered lounge-style chairs, serves equally well as a spot for after-work drinks and conversation or the bustling late-night scene it morphs into. Luckily, the full food menu is available at the bar, too, because the addictive khachapuri, a Georgian bread boat filled with an egg and loads of cheese and butter, is one of the city’s must-have dishes.

THE DRINK TO DRINK: The eponymous Compass Rose is a refreshing choice, with Georgian sparkling wine, pomegranate liqueur and rose water.

KNOW BEFORE YOU GO: The bar space is small and quickly packs up, and the dining room doesn’t take reservations. Plan accordingly for weekend evenings.
