Bar Bruno is more of a neighborhood cafe than it is a bar, and it’s open for lunch and dinner every day. Here you can eat Mexican and American stuff like tacos, wings, and a burger, and they also serve a bunch of different margaritas. There’s a subtle 1960’s theme to the whole place, and we like it for a casual meal with a friend, or a drink and snack while you wait for your chance to eat at Lucali. If it’s nice out, grab a table on the sidewalk.
