This was a lovely place to chill before heading to dinner. They have big, wide open windows from which we stared out into a lovely, sunny evening. Had a couple glasses of nice wine. We will definitely be going back.

They have a location at the very end of one of the JetBlue terminals. Nice selections of wines and we had a great plate of prosciutto. Expensive but you are in an airport. Nice spot to sit while waiting for your plane.

This is a great no frills wine bar to meet with friends or potential first date. It's not too crowded. Great vibe. Lot's of wine selection. In terms of food, the bruschetta was great plate. I love their truffle panini :)

Jump on your Vespa and head over to Bar Veloce. Excellent Italian wine selection. Every one of their locations are consistently professional and an excellent place as a starting off point at the end of the day.

This is the kind of wine bar where you can settle in for an entire evening while drinking delicious wines and eating various appetizer size treats the whole time. All the classic musts, dark setting, sexy background, beautiful bar, tucked away nooks, great food and...More

East Village
There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village,
which offers plenty of unique small businesses
catering to longtime New Yorkers and area college
students alike. The East Village retains a bit of the
old-time neighbourhood feel that you can still
experience today thanks to a mix of locally-owned
shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of
the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to
