Oenophiles can swirl a glass at this wine-buzzed drinkery, pouring 60 single-vineyard varieties by the glass. Lining deep-eggplant walls are artworks culled by owner Mine Ayberk, a Turkish art-dealer-turned-sommelier, who curates a vino list like one would a gallery, plucking exclusively Old World single-vineyard varieties for her 26-seat den. Choose your glass, from fruity Austrian whites to robust Burgundy reds, at the horseshoe-shaped oak bar. In addition to the grapeage, the bar sates nonwinos with imported beers and sake cocktails (like the serrano-spiked Sun Flying, with ginger simple syrup and muddled rhubarb). Dapper bites like terrines, pâtés and Russian caviar are also on offer.
