Upper East Side/Midtown East Wine Bar Suggestion?

I'm looking for a relaxed wine bar in the 50's or 60's on the East Side. Any suggestions?

    I had a very terrible experience at accademia di vino -- I couldnt believe how much attitude the hostess at the front had....the wine WAS great, but the food I thought was ordinary.

      ive had a similar exp w the hostess when its crowded on a thur or fri night but there are two bars to get a drink or apps at while you wait for a table - and i really like the food.

        Well, it's not a wine bar, but Solera is good. They have a nice selection of wine and really good tapas.
