Wine Bar, New York City
This wine bar is what has become of my favorite restaurant in the city. Ovo. Now though, they have high tables and stools. Very good selection of the wines. I am happy with this place. But every time I go I find myself missing the old.
Dress Code: They do not have a dress code here. Or at least I've seen nothing that would imply it.
Cute place (use to be the old OVO) with some excellent wine. They usually have wine tastings that you can sign up for which they pair with some excellent appetizers.
I've been here a few times and the last time I was here we attended the wine tasting. The wines were quite good.
This is the wine bar SES used to frequent with me in summer of 2005. They offer a teriffic selection of wines, but it's so loud here that you can barely hear yourself think. For me the atmospher doesn't work. The whole purpose of going out for drinks is so you can talk to your company not so you can shout above the people sitting next to you. It is a bit quieter on the patio, but if its raining that won't help. I have to admit that he did all of the ordering so I haven't a clue as to what we had, but believe you me, each glass of wine was fantastic.
Dress Code: None that I know of, but be reasonable.
