The food at this stylish Midtown newcomer isn't quite yet what it could be, but the VINOCITY
wine program has plenty of juice. Settle in at the bar and choose from over 60 glasses of wine, ranging from a $6 Pinot Grigio to a $27 Napa Cabernet. Consult with the well-informed staff to experiment with varietals you may not have tried before, such as the Treana Viognier-Marsanne blend -- an unexpectedly lush, buttery find on a recent visit.
