Kaia Wine Bar
Kaia
Josh Levin (Babbo) and Suzaan Hauptfleisch (La Grenouille) trade European-style fine dining for a South African–inspired vino spot on the fringes of the Upper East Side. The bar's name means "home" in Zulu and it's reflected in the rustic 50-seat spot, which features cheery touches like canning jars filled with flowers. While the 50-bottle wine list highlights a variety of new-world vinos, the food offerings focus solely on South Africa with small plates like bunny chow (bread filled with chicken curry) and bobotie (spiced meat topped with egg custard).

Cute South African wine bar on 3rd Ave.  I've been here a few times for a glass of wine and a snack.  I've never had a full meal, but everything always looks fantastic.  The wine is a tad pricey, but it's nice little date place.
