    Brick walls, a tin-stamped ceiling, and a chalkboard wall with the day's carefully selected pours, craft beers, and small plates (made from locally sourced ingredients) give the place a casual vibe. Read more

    They have basque cider and an amazing selection of other goodies from Spain (and other parts of the world) — grateful to have it in the neighborhood!

    Charming wine bar focused on offbeat, natural wines. Prices per glass reliably several dollars cheaper than Manhattan's, and the staff is happy to tell you as much about wine as you want to know.
