New York: Wine Bars

4 of 32

These
new wine bars are ideal places to swirl, sip—and sup.

Ardesia Order irresistible house-made pretzels, the
quail-egg toast (a sly take on eggs Benedict), and a banh mi sandwich
reimagined with house-cured duck. Snacks for two $45.

Terroir Tribeca With a zillion times more space than the
cult East Village original, this brick-walled TriBeCa location still gets
seriously crowded. That’s because Paul Grieco’s quirky wine list reads like a
pop postmodern novel and chef Marco Canora’s fried sage–wrapped lamb sausage
and veal-and-ricotta meatballs are addictive. Snacks for two $24.

Bar Maialino Maialino’s enoteca is a perfect place
for a pre-dinner quartino of new-wave Lambrusco and a few rosy curls
of La Quercia prosciutto. Come before seven to snag a spot with a view of Gramercy Park. Snacks for two $50. —Anya von
