    The Ardesia kitchen slathers toast with bacon, quail eggs, and an obscene amount of foamy hollandaise. It packs all the flavor and goop of a BEC without all the heaviness. Read more

    The combination of the seemingly endless selection of wine, the food, the mixed drinks, and the atmosphere make Ardesia an absolute must visit bar in not only Hell’s Kitchen, but New York City. Read more

    Grab a spot on the patio and indulge in a great selection of wines, cheese, and small plates. The quail egg toast and deviled eggs are two of our faves. Pay with Cover and skip waiting for the check!

    Ardesia is a true midtown utility spot. Wine and small plates in a non-cheesy environment is exactly the setup you need. Add to that its reasonable prices, friendly service, and outdoor seating.

    You must try the Charles Morrow - fall wine cocktail - wonderful rich mix of Madeira, rosemary Vermouth, smoked wormwood bitters. Served w a sprig of fresh rosemary. Mmmmmmm done.

    This place is great! For those if us who work in midtown this is a great way to catch a drink locally while getting out of midtown madness! Great wine menu and delicious small plates!

    Grub Street off-menu drink: Faux-Bloody Mary. "There's no vodka served at this westside wine bar. Instead, the staff infuses dry sherry with jalapeño & combines it with pimenton-spiked tomato juice."

    Great champagne rose & prosecco, friendly staff & comfie table by the window with good view of the space & people. Love the atmosphere & drinks, food is too salty for me though. Cheers to Ardesia! s

    Solid wine selection and an unassuming locale in Hell's Kitchen make this quiet spot great for dates or just kind of getting away from the bustle.

    This sleek bar boasts a two-story wine wall. Don’t cheat yourself out of a perfect experience. Try a Bordeaux. It will be perfect whether you’re on the patio or in the lounge. You won’t be sorry.

    Ardesia's giving the city's foodies a delicious reason to visit Hell's Kitchen. Savor a glass of Hungarian wine, and try the spicy duck banh mi--it's giving a whole new meaning to finger food.

    Grab a table outside and enjoy $6 glasses of wine during happy hour. Then snack on the Homemade NY Style Pretzels and delicious Artisanal Cheeses. Service is excellent but slow.

    At this Hell’s Kitchen wine bar, the ice cream sandwiches are created with dense chocolate cake and a variety of ice cream flavors. Each sandwich is individually wrapped in paper.

    I enjoyed the food and atmosphere here! I would recommend the pastrami sandwich -- very delicious. Quail Egg dish was too salty for me.

    Get the quail egg toast - decadent and comforting at the same time. Also try the cauliflower - they add breadcrumbs to give it texture.
