St. Anselm
review by Zach B. Siegel

St. Anselm is the democratic response to the New York steakhouse aristocracy. Owner Joe Carroll’s wine list is remarkably broad and approachable, with values from around the world. To complement the kitchen’s massive grill, which touches nearly every dish on the menu, drink earthy and bold—perhaps ...Read the full review

LaRina
review by Zachary Sussman

The first thing you’ll notice as you enter LaRina Pastificio & Vino is the wall of artisanal vermouth and amaro behind the bar. “Some are so regional I didn’t even know they existed when I was in Italy,” explains Emilia-Romagna native Giulia Pelliccioni, who helms the eclectic, ...Read the full review

Faun
review by Zach Siegel

Few wine lists have remained as influential as the one beverage director Bill Fitch pioneered nearly a decade ago at Brooklyn’s Vinegar Hill House; its seamless blend of offbeat naturalism and Old-World classicism helped to define an entire generation of Brooklyn beverage programs. While many of the fringe ...Read the full review

Freek’s Mill
review by Tara Q. Thomas

Viewed from Google Maps, it might not look like a promising destination, a no-man’s land of small factories and a fair hike from the nearest subway. But press on. When you arrive, you’ll be welcomed by the glow of a wood-burning fire, from which all sorts of ...Read the full review

Four Horsemen
review by Tara Q. Thomas

Manhattan may have its fair share of natural wine bars, yet The Four Horsemen regularly draws diners across the Williamsburg Bridge, to see what Justin Chearno is pouring. It’s an equal-opportunity scene, where bottles of Georgian rkatsiteli mingle with Dutraive cru Beaujolais and Arnot-Roberts trousseau, not to mention ...Read the full review

Achilles Heel
review by Zach B. Siegel

This neighborhood bar, from Brooklyn restaurateur Andrew Tarlow, excels in simple pleasures. John Connolly’s wine list favors the rustic and the versatile, shining a light on unheralded French wines, from Aveyron to Vin de France, most well under $100. Chef Lee Desrosiers’ menu, which changes daily, re-imagines the possibilities ...Read the full review

Sauvage
review by Caitlin Griffith

In a follow-up to the highly acclaimed oyster-and-absinthe bar Maison Premiere, Krystof Zizka and Joshua Boissy recently opened Sauvage, a large-windowed space overlooking Greenpoint’s McCarren Park. Bar director Will Elliott focuses on low-alcohol cocktails to enjoy ...Read the full review

Tørst
review by Justin Kennedy

The scene took on a new degree of intensity when, last spring, Evil Twin Brewing honcho Jeppe Jarnit-Bjergsø left his native Copenhagen and relocated with his family to Greenpoint, Brooklyn, to help open Tørst, a neo-Nordic temple to haute beer. The Danish expat’s Scandinavian sensibilities permeate the ...Read the full review

Semilla
review by Caitlin Griffith

Under the JMZ elevated train tracks in south Williamsburg, Semilla is a stylish oasis. From a kitchen in full view of a u-shaped 18-seat bar, Pam Yung and José Ramírez-Ruiz put out some of the most exciting vegetable-forward meals in New York. For $75, the duo offers ten courses, ...Read the full review

Roberta’s
review by Tara Q. Thomas

Everyone talks about the pizza here, but let’s talk about the wine list: Amanda Smeltz takes the provenance of her wines as seriously as the chefs do the food (which is significant: They grow much of the produce themselves, and provide a home base for Heritage Radio Network ...Read the full review

Maison Premiere
review by Caitlin Griffith

Head here for absinthe service, either drip with a sugar cube, or mixed in a colada-riff with rhum, crème de menthe, pineapple and coconut; if the green fairy isn’t your thing, choose from any number of Sherry-based cocktails. Add in a trellised backyard, suspender-clad barmen and one ...Read the full review
