When Green Russell's doors -- specifically, the swinging pie-shop door that fronts the place -- opened in November 2010, they revealed a beautiful space that Frank and Jacqueline Bonanno and award-winning bar manager Adam Hodak had created in this subterranean spot in Larimer Square. Exposed brick walls back intimate nooks and crannies filled with clusters of armchairs; plush red swivel bar chairs line up before the bar, and a greenhouse full of herbs destined for future cocktails casts a green light behind it. Throughout the space, there's an air of hushed, sultry secrecy -- even though Green Russell has never been much of a secret. Nor is it a secret that both the kitchen and the bar have been uneven. But when they're cooking, some of the Russell bartenders mix truly excellent cocktails, and legendary chef Sean Kelly is now helping out in the kitchen.
