Neighborhood native Jennifer Klein is behind this funky vino bar named after a onetime UWS diner. Thirty wines by the glass feature old-world countries (France, Italy, Spain), and there is an extensive bottle list with more than150 selections. For a boozier sip, try a red-wine-based tipple, or a cocktail like the Who's Your Daddy, which combines vodka and Sugar Daddy's caramel. Nibble on cheese and charcuterie, a club sandwich or walnut-gorgonzola ravioli at one of the multicolored banquettes, illuminated by a 25-foot-long chandelier made from brass instruments.
