Design Restaurants and Bars: cool addresses in Rome - Part 3.

Now let’s move to Colosseo area and stop at Caffè Propaganda.

It is a really stylish Restaurant, Bistro and Cocktail Bar. The decor is chic and informal with a retro Parisian bistro-style atmosphere. When you walk in…it seems to be in a New Yorker caffè, decorated in the French bistro-style…really cute, refined, old fashioned and contemporary at the same time; the feel is metropolitan, sophisticated but friendly relaxed.

The cuisine is gourmet and you can live it all the day long: you can taste light dishes like salads, sandwiches, ham and cheese or main courses created by Marco Bravin e Walter Di Ruocco, the two chefs of Caffè Propaganda, from midday to nighttime. During the afternoon you can relax over a cup of tea and macarons, in the evening you can have your happy hour or, later, your drinks.

SGROPPINO - a slushy combination of lemon sorbet, vodka, and prosecco, is common in Italy as a palate cleanser, a dessert, or a pre-dinner drink. 

⅓ cup lemon sorbet ~ 3 oz. prosecco ~ 1 oz. vodka

In a stainless steel bowl or cocktail shaker, whisk together the sorbet and a splash of the prosecco until fully incorporated. While whisking, slowly pour in the vodka and then the remainder of the prosecco. Serve in a martini glass or coupe.
