Cozy and Palermo centered, Bar du Marché is a great spot to sip wine, nibble cheese and watch out the window at the passers by or the dripping rain. As its name implies, the wine-bar/bistro is French inspired and has a great wine and cheese selection as well as café food (best to go for the wine and cheese).
Additionally, a mysterious staircase leads to a closed door Japanese restaurant for up to 12 people where the chef is in charge of seducing his customers with 5 course sushi-filled dinners. Nicaragua 5946, Palermo. 4778-1050.
