From the editors of Condé Nast Traveler:Chilean fun lover Juan Santa Cruzthe driving force behind Casa Cruz, celebs' favorite Palermo dining spotopted for the same blackened walls and iconic gilt doors at next-door Bar Isabel. Glitzy dressing will get you into the seventies-inspired interior, where banks of ceiling lights pulsate to upbeat house, and waiters sell "Isabelinas," casino-type chips used at the bar as scrip. The drink menu varies with the hour, kicking off with the hangover-soothing Bamboo (dry sherry, vermouth, and orange bitters) and aperitifs based on Campari, Cynar, and champagne; heavy-hitting martinis, punches, and pink gins emerge after midnight. Guests grab a plate of octopus carpaccio and retire to the white marble, jasmine-trailed courtyard, where logs crackle in the fireplace even on steamy summer nights.2010 Hot List
