BARTENDER BOB HAS A STORY—MANY STORIES—TO TELL

My favourite New York bar has long been Fanelli’s, a gritty, beer-and-burger joint on Soho’s Prince Street. Said to be the second-oldest continuously operating bar in the city, it’s a popular destination for locals and tourists alike.  Scrappy and unaffected, Fanelli’s Cafe ...
