Last day NYC tomorw lunch in W Village with good wine by the glass list

Going to prowl W Village looking for a casual lunch place with a good wine by the glass list. Like Italian but open to all foods. Tasty and fun vibe nothing formal. Any thoughts?

  1. 'ino Wine Bar 21 Bedford Street btwn 6th Ave &

    And you can trust me because I focus on wine, and I would never have sent you to that wretched Artichoke, and I agree Katz's is fun for the experience, but it's not a "must" eat.

        fair enough, good catch. (but if he goes back, the ino family are for more rustic things, truffle egg toast doesn't scream "order me") do they have the bollito sandwich at ino?

          Good to know about the bolito sandwich at ino. How is it?

    1. Try Spunto on Carmine -- they have great lunch specials.

      1. How about Perry Street? Any further west and you'll be in New Jersey. They have an excellent prix fixe lunch with great wine as cheap as $6 per glass.

          To my taste, Perry Street is not a good restaurant (boring/generic) and they don't have a good wine list. I love Jean Georges and Nougatine, though their wine list is also a bit weak.

        2. If there's more than one person, I would suggest Lupa or Otto for great food and a big list of half carafes.
          Blue ribbon bakery's open for lunch too and their wine list looks decent

            its a pleasure to go solo to either of those batali places. they take good care of you at the bar seats. great wine by the glass lists.

            by far my fav little local spot for lunch/brunch is ZAMPA.

                Ended up going to Ino and tried the truffled egg toast again didnt like them the first time at inoteca too doughy however this time they were delicious the bread had a little slight char to it adding to the texture thanks
