1291 Lexington Ave. at 87th St., New York, NY 10128

This original shop on the Upper East Side of this revolutionary, east-coast, wine chain is now under the A&P umbrella, but still carries its own name and philosophy. With only about 100 or so selections at a time, Best Cellars is the opposite of a cluttered, hard-to-find, emporium which has everything. Bottles are color-coded and stuck in a wall-grid of pigeon holes organized by characteristics instead region, while a few bottle-laden, mahogany tables take up the simple, concrete floor space designed by Nobu Architect David Rockwell. Unbelievably, almost every bottle is under $15.
