This wine and tapas spot replaced the much-loved East Village café Drink Me. Thankfully, the space’s charm is intact: Exposed brick walls, dark wood furnishings and leather-trimmed barstools add a rustic touch. The bar offers a decent choice of bottled beers, as well as wines by the glass or bottle—including a broad international selection. Hungry? Try the terrific focaccia-like pizza topped with sliced meatballs and caramelized onions.
