    For some reason, you find yourself in Midtown. Maybe you messed up and were convinced you had to see Times Square. Maybe you've got tickets to a Broadway show and you need to seek refuge and perhaps a quick bite. Where do you go, you ask? No place better than Aldo Sohm's Wine Bar. Don't let the tastevin-wearing sommeliers scare you. Sit down, order a glass from any of the plethora of bottles that are open on any given night, eat some hearty small bites and hide from the madness that is the outside world.

    Address: 70 Pine Street, New York

    Crown Shy opened in the financial district early 2019 and is a partnership between the chef James Kent, formerly of The NoMad, and Jeff Katz, managing partner at Del Posto. The building is a 67-stories beauty from 1932 that was recently converted into apartments and hotel rooms. The venue is expansive and beautiful, and the food has earned rave reviews, but we would like to point out the wine selection (see below). The place is busy and appreciated by financial types and wine lovers alike. (The name? It refers to tall trees, and yes, you can guess the address or find it here on the page). The...

  3. Phone: (718) 254-0327

    Address: 465 Court Street, Brooklyn

    An extremely homey and warm neighborhood spot. The food menu is focused on small, sharable plates that are very tasty, as is to be expected from the chefs behind the spots that line this block. Their other restaurants include: Frankie's 457 Spuntino and the brand-new F&F Pizzeria, which despite how bare bones it looks, serves one of the best slices anywhere. Long time Wine Director, John Burns Paterson (“JBP” to anyone who knows him) has amassed a truly impressive list, with pages of wines that will make your mouth water. European classics and a very respectable list of amazing West Coast pr...

  4. Phone: (917) 909-0434

    Address: 231 Court Street, Brooklyn

    Located in Carrol Garden’s, June Wine Bar has long been a staple of the Brooklyn natural wine scene. This laid-back neighborhood favorite has recently been given an exciting boost when they brought on executive chef Diego Moya (formerly of Racines). Diego has always cooked some of my favorite food in the city, focusing on off-the-beat and path flavor combinations. The wine list definitely leans on the more natural side of things, there is even a section called “????????”. The champagne section is always full of exciting growers, but make sure not to skip “Not Champagne, but tastes damn good”...

  5. Phone: (212) 343-3660

    Address: 249 Centre Street, New York

    La Compagnie des Vins Surnaturels is a wine bar in New York City. Unpronounceable to most New Yorkers, it’s just known as “Compagnie” and it is perhaps the best wine bar in downtown Manhattan. The staff is heavily made up of former fine dining employees and has amassed a list full of gems from all over the world. La Compagnie is a place where industry folk tend to end up after finishing their shifts. Chances are that you'll gain a friend or two if you sit at the bar, not to mention share a bottle or two.

  6. Phone: (917) 748-3248

    Address: 517 West 38th Street, New York

    Recently re-opened after a long covid closure, Legacy Records is finally back and serving chef Ryan Hardy’s Italian inspired fare. Handmade pasta, raw bar and an incredible honey lacquered duck breast are not to be missed. In typical Delicious Hospitality fashion, the lighting is dim, the music is loud, and the decor is on point. Don’t forget to grab a cocktail at Ada’s Place upstairs before or after your meal. There’s Tarragona Chartreuse waiting for you… The wine list focuses heavily on French and Italian wine, but there is a smattering of wines from all over the world. Due to covid closure...

  7. Phone: (917) 966-6094

    Address: 329 Van Brunt Street, Brooklyn

    A welcome addition to a neighborhood that's rapidly becoming a drinking destination. Perhaps most publicized for being home to one of the city's best burgers (no small feat), this restaurant by Billy Durney, from perennial favorite Hometown Bar-B-Que. Much of the clientele seem to enjoy beer or cocktails, so perhaps the wine flies under the radar a bit. All the better for us drinkers! This is a casual destination, even if it can be hard to snag a seat due to its popularity. Red Hook Tavern features a really great mid-sized wine list, filled with some amazing value picks and real rarities hidi...

  8. Phone: (718) 599-4900

    Address: 295 Grand Street, Brooklyn

    The Four Horsemen is a wine bar and restaurant in Brooklyn, New York. This Williamsburg wine bar and restaurant has an outspoken focus on natural wine. I imagine this either sounds like your dream or a true nightmare. The truth is a little more grey. The fact of the matter is that the wine list at Four Horsemen is far more nuanced, and is full of delicious wine without flaws. The food way overperforms too, and the soundtrack is always on point (as is to be expected, LCD Soundsystem front man James Murphy is one of the owners).

  9. Phone: (212) 625-9463

    Address: 24 Harrison Street, New York

    Terroir Tribeca is a wine bar in New York City. Made famous by Paul Grieco's amazingly designed and detailed wine lists, this Wine Bar of wine bars continue to excel, always offering troves of interesting wines at good prices. Don't go here on dates though as you'll want to spend some time with your nose in the list (and glass).
