New York wine and food pleasures
Discovering wine bars and eateries in New York City is one of life’s great pleasures.
Of course, an outsider can only ever scratch the surface. But there is much to delight in the ever-changing landscape.
It is a mixing pot of cultures and cuisines with a sweep of international wines on offer.
For a touch of France, visit Buvette in Greenwich Village on 42 Grove St. If travelling solo, nab a seat in the window and watch the world go by while sipping Champagne.
Though if you are after a global selection of wines, head to Aldo Sohm Wine Bar in Midtown, at 151 W 51st St, with its diverse offering by the glass and bottle.
For classy cocktails, don’t miss the Campbell Apartment above Grand Central Station, at 15 Vanderbilt Ave. It is a popular spot so be sure to reserve a table to avoid disappointment.
Delight in the magnificent food offering at Eataly, a vibrant and extensive Italian extravaganza with locations in the Flatiron district, at 200 5th Ave, and Downtown at 101 Liberty St.
And for a slice of New York history, visit Katz’s Deli, at 205 E Houston St in the Lower East Side, for the best pastrami and pickles you will ever try.
