Wine bar recs

I will be visiting Manhattan in early January, and I would like to check out a great wine bar. I'm looking for something that focuses on Old World wines, with a large by-the-glass list. I also want the place to have a menu of small wine-friendly plates. Good ambiance and friendly crowd also a plus.

Any recommendations?

  1. 'inoteca

    98 Rivington St, New York, NY 10002

    1. Try Bin 71- 71st and Columbus. Great wine list, very reasonable. Good small bites

        And it's cousin Barcibo right around the corner on 70th and Broadway is just as good (and has a little more space).

      2. Bar Veloce, Chelsea & East Village locations
        Suba, LES

          Also Bar Carrera next to EV Bar Veloce. They serve tapas, laid back atmosphere.

        2. I am also going to NY at the beginning of January and I was planning to check out Bar Boulud which will open for new year's eve if I remember correctly. It is Daniel Boulud opening a wine bar on Broadway at the corner of 64th.

          1. While on the upper west side definitely go to Wine & Roses. It's a couple of blocks from Bin 71. In the east village In Vino has a great selection of Italian wines. it's on 4th between Ave A and B. I would also go to 8th street Winecellar. For absolute perfection Monday Room on Elizabeth. Ive heard good things about Vin Noir, i think it's on Mott but have yet to visit.

              Vin Noir seems to be closed: called their #, no response.

                If UWS or UES, Pudding Stones is great
