    311 Pike St., Downtown
    Downtown's new The Lytle Park Hotel opened to the public this June, along with their in-house, upscale Italian eatery Subito and sophisticated rooftop lounge, Vista at Lytle Park.
    Subito's menu focuses on homemade pastas, stone-oven pizzas, fresh seafood, steaks and antipasti, with executive chef Michael McIntosh at the helm. Guests can choose from more traditional Italian eats like cacio e pepe, burrata and margherita pizza or opt for creative takes on classics like their vegan torta di ceci with vegan tofu-ricotta, farinata, kale, beets, carrot ribbons lemon oil and micro greens.
    Head to their bar for a selection of whites, reds and sparkling wines — including their own house sparkling wine by Ohio River Valley. They also boast spirits and cocktails, like their Mabel's Manhattan with Woodford Rye, Carpano Antica, Peychaud's and Benedictine bitters and a filthy cherry.
