I’ve been spending a lot of time checking out my friend Levi Dalton’s fabulous podcast. “I’ll Drink to That,” as well as talking to some of the people involved — Sabra Lewis, Pascaline Lepeltier, Veronica Stoler, and the folks from Louis/Dressner, among others. I’d like to share some thoughts from my perspective on the wine scene here in New York City.
First, there are a lot of great places to find beautiful wines — wines that show balance, terroir, and a sense of place. These types of wines are not always easy to get (please, if you’re outside of New York, let us know if and where you can find wines from Mikael Bouges, Jean Foillard, or López de Heredia) but I believe that we’re in a renaissance of great wine, both from a production standpoint and in the sense that there are so many varied and enjoyable places to experience these wines. This is a great thing.
Here are some top places, both casual and not-so-casual, to enjoy a bottle or two during the spring.
Gramercy Tavern: Great food, and an amazing wine list. I prefer the more casual tavern room to the dining room.
Rouge Tomate: Pascaline, and now Veronica, are pouring amazing wines. The food is beautiful, and good for you, too!
Boulud Sud, Épicerie Boulud and Bar Boulud: Chef Daniel Boulud’s empire has fantastic food, coffee, pastries, and of course, wines from sommelier Michael Madrigal. One of our favorite places on the Upper West Side.
Corkbuzz: At this wine studio near 14th Street, grab a glass of bubbles. A great selection, and the staff is great, too.
Central Park: Here, there is always space for a picnic. Grab a bottle from us and head out to the park for an afternoon in the sun.
Terroir on the Highline: For more outdoor sipping, Paul Greco runs a tight ship at Terroir on the Highline — so the snacks will be amazing, and so too the Riesling!
67 Wine: Of course, you can always start with us at www.67wine.com!
