Aldo Sohm Wine Bar (Restaurant/Bar/Retail Reviews)

This is NYC's best post-theater option for great wine and a quick bite, thanks to sommelier Aldo Sohm’s ever-changing, far-ranging by-the glass selections and the Austrian accented charcuterie tower.

La Compagnie des Vins Surnaturels (Restaurant/Bar/Retail Reviews)

Caleb Ganzer, a W&S Best New Sommelier 2016, has turned this dark NoLita space into a sommelier hangout, thanks in particular to the extensive Champagne list, where rare bottles regularly turn up at a fraction of the usual price. Wine geeks delight in the Jura selection while...Read Full Story

Sushi-Seki (Restaurant/Bar/Retail Reviews)

Chef Seki’s pristine, boundary-pushing sushi works brilliantly with the unexpected pairings by Yasuyuki Suzuki, Rick Zouad and Koichi Ishiguro—a Japanese beer from a sake brewery, a Hatzidakis Santorini, a long soju cocktail or a crisp, clear sake. Recently, the team opened seven seats at the bar for...Read Full Story

Racines (Restaurant/Bar/Retail Reviews)

Late night, Racines can be sommelier central, as the industry gathers to plunder owner Arnaud Tronche’s wine list. With an assist from partner David Lillie, of Chambers Street Wines down the next block, he’s stocked a geek’s dream cellar, full of small-production Champagne, Jura...Read Full Story

Molyvos (Restaurant/Bar/Retail Reviews)

Now entering its third decade, Molyvos was doing the Greek thing long before Santorini became an alternative to Sancerre. The food is impeccable, unfussy and true to the flavors you’d find in the home of a loving Greek chef; the wine list is unparalleled, with more...Read Full Story

abcV (Restaurant/Bar/Retail Reviews)

Everything feels virtuous in Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s vegetable-forward version of his ABC Kitchen, from the white walls to the clean flavors that shine with extra wattage on his carefully crafted plates. To fully experience abcV, you’d start with a tonic with ashwagandha and ginseng to relax,...Read Full Story

Bar ’91 (Restaurant/Bar/Retail Reviews)

While the wine list isn’t as extensive as the one at Eli’s Table, the choices at Bar ’91 are outrageously good for a cozy bistro near Museum Mile. Owner Eli Zabar and wine director Kilian Robin offer more than enough on the one-page list...Read Full Story

Kilo (Restaurant/Bar/Retail Reviews)

A sliver of a space in Hell’s Kitchen, Kilo feels like a well-kept secret, especially when the wine list lands. How’d a 2004 Goumennissa from Tatsis, a tiny winery with a cult following in Greece, end up here? Who’d pour Koehler-Ruprecht’s pinot noir rosé...Read Full Story

Nur (Restaurant/Bar/Retail Reviews)

NYC is having a love affair with Middle Eastern food, whether it’s the hummus at Dizengoff and halva at Seed + Mill, the pita at Miznon or falafel at Taïm. Only at Nur, however, does the food get...Read Full Story

Vini e Fritti (Restaurant/Bar/Retail Reviews)

Fried food and sparkling wine—what more do you need to know? The plates are Italian-style—think cheesy, mushroom-infused suppli, crisp artichokes and airy sweetbreads just out of a deep-fryer bath; the wine list is cherry=picked from the bubbles selection at Marta, Danny Meyer...Read Full Story
