I don’t remember the first time I went to La Lanterna. I’ve been there so many times, and since I lived on West 3rd Street and Bleecker Street, La Lanterna was like a second home to me. I’ve tried a lot of desserts, gelato and specialty drinks there. There used to be more cafes like this in the city, but they are slowly dying out. La Lanterna is a romantic place, dark and cozy, always bustling yet never too crowded. There is a lovely outdoor garden, but I never like sitting there. I prefer the tables inside. I conspired about life in its cozy nooks many a night. When the weather gets cold, my thoughts turn to the long drink menu of warm comfort. I can while away an afternoon well into the evening here, chatting and dreaming.
