Terroir Tribeca Wine Bar
This populist wine bar, with locations in the East Village and Murray Hill features a winning mix of wines on tap, rock & roll on the speakers and a hyperactive beverage list peppered with entertaining asides. Young, energetic staffers are keen to introduce drinkers to lesser-known wine-producing regions like the Canary Islands, where volcanic soil lends a smoky minerality to the 2009 Frontn de Oro ($13 per glass). You'll find most patrons nibbling on something while they drink, and you should follow suit—try veal-and-ricotta meatballs ($17) or sage-wrapped lamb sausages ($8) from chef Marco Canora.

A favorite after-work spot in Tribeca. The every day happy hour deal is fun - $1 oysters + reduced prices on other food, wine, and beer. All of the servers are extremely knowledgable about the wine list and are happy to make recommendations from their extensive list. It does get a little crowded after 6p/on weekends (just like everywhere else in NYC), but if you come early or mid-week, you should have no problem grabbing a seat at the bar. I highly recommend the mozzarella balls - and balancing them out with the brussels sprouts.

I went to Terroir with my girlfriends for a Friday happy hour gathering. I didn’t drink any wine, so I can’t personally speak to the quality of their wine list. My friends really enjoyed their wines though with their favorite being a rose flight of three roses. We ordered quite a bit of food – happy hour oysters, hummus on toast, meat balls, fried chicken, meat and bread and a watermelon salad. All of the food was very tasty with exception to the watermelon salad which was too salty. I’m not sure if it was the cheese, but I had to pick out a lot of pieces from the salad to even be able to eat. Out of the rest of the food, the fried chicken was my favorite. The meat was very juicy and tender. The dipping sauce paired well with the chicken. Overall, Terroir is a nice place to meet up for drink and snacks, but I’ve been to other wine bars that are less noisy and have comparable food.
