Wine by the Glass

  • m

I recently came back from Napa Valley and have a whole new appreciation for wines.

Any great wine bars / bars / restaurants that have a great wine by the glass menu?

  1. Veritas has one of the most extraordinary wine lists in the city. Ergo, their wine by the glass menu is excellent. Table service and bar dining.

    1. Bar Veloce in e. village (italian); Morrell's Wine Bar (Rock Center)

      1. Cru if you are looking for something high end. VinoVino in Tribeca for something more casual.

        1. Thanks for the all the replies.

          Any suggestions for great Sparkling wines / Champagnes by the glass?

              fpor sparkling: Champagne Bar at Country (upstairs)

              another new entry for wine by the glass: Varietal in Chelsea

            2. Grand Central Oyster Bar has a great list by the glass including champagnes. Hearth has a very interesting list by the glass. I understand Country has a champagne bar.

              1. Otto is very good.

                1. Hey there,
                  I really enjoy the wines by the glass at Artisinal. You could even do a flight of Napa wines with California cheeses to match if you were in the mood. Enjoy!

                    Artisanal is my vote here, too. Mainly because they offer everything on their list (non-reserve list, that is) by the glass. Dozens of wines. Excellent selection.

                  2. I recently discover a very good wine bar on west houston called manon.They have around 50 wines by the glass and 30% less expensive than artisanal.

                          you opened a year old thread to comment 'yes'?

                            Hey Chow Gal,

                            You should appreciate the Joycean quality of this. It sometimes takes time to summon up the courage to type 'yes'. Saying it, and you enter an entirely different dimension of time, as any man will tell you..

                            Ah, yes.

                        2. Cru has a nice wines by the glass list, and what I like about them is that you can order a half glass so you can try lots of different types.

                          1. My two favorites are Bar Veloce in the East Village, and Fig and Olive, on 61st and Lexington.

                            1. I really like Metro Cafe on 21st between Park and Broadway and around the corner on Broadway a new bar just opened, I forget the name but I believe its upstairs from Punch.

                              Last week at Metro I had a flight with the Mollydooker Boxer, Turley Prentiss, a Rosenblum Zin and a Chateneuf du Pape. Decor is only ok but just the wines are great and much cheaper than Morrell's.

                              1. Did you order any food while you were there, other than small plates? I had their burger once a couple years ago and it was very good but I was wondering if this is a place worth going to for a meal.

                                    their kobe burger is great as are their fries, my friend raved about their mac and cheese and their chocolate cake is awesome!! Ceasar salad was gross though...

                                  2. Morrell Wine Bar, Grape and Grain, Wine and Roses, Taste. All excellent and all have great food to go with the wine too.

                                    1. The Bar Room at The Modern has a very interesting selection by the glass. Pricey but a good pour and sophisticated atmosphere (that is, of course, if you can get in - try the afternoon but definitely before the MoMA closes!).
