A former Lower East Side mobster hangout, the recently remodeled Lansky Lounge and Grill--tucked into an alleyway behind Ratner's Deli--still offers the ambience of a speakeasy for entertaining and corporate events. The dimly lit space--exposed brick rooms filled with dark wood, curving walls and cushioned banquettes--includes a bar and lounge area and a separate dining room that can be used for corporate dinners and receptions. The restaurant specializes in contemporary American cuisine and is known for its innovative cocktails. --Samantha Melamed
