Sayra's Wine Bar

Joining cool-kid spots like Rockaway Taco and Rippers, the Rockaway's first wine bar brings a bougie element to the 'hood's food scene. The brainchild of local surfer Rashida Jackson and artist Patrick Flibotte, the 28-seat shoreside drinkery showcases seasonal vino from hang-ten regions around the world: chardonnay from Cali's Sonoma Coast, sauvignon blanc from New Zealand's Sandy Cove and cava from Catalonia, Spain. Along with the 13-bottle wine list, eight beers are available at the oak-and-steel bar: Sixpoint Crisp Lager and Lagunitas IPA on draft, Duval and Allagash White in bottles. Soak up the suds with tapas including smoked-paprika–rosemary chips, marinated olives and BBQ pulled-pork sandwiches, piled on silver-dollar brioche from Brooklyn Bread. Out back is a 1,200-square-foot garden fitted with beach rocks and wooden picnic tables. Settle under the tin canopy for live jazz on Thursday nights or black-and-white flicks on Saturdays.
