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.

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.
