Vella Wine Bar + Kitchen

Restaurants, Italian Upper East Side

Time Out says

The focus of this Upper East Side eatery is on the vino, with 24 wines available by the glass or carafe and another 40-plus available by the bottle. You could also order a specialty cocktail or pint of beer, if you’re not a big wine drinker. And after a glass or four of wine, you’ll want to order some food. The menu reveals influences of French, Italian, and seasonal American cuisine, offering everything from build-your-own charcuterie and cheese boards to oysters ($18 for six, $33 for twelve) to truffled mac and cheese ($12). Other lighter offerings include a burrata caprese salad ($16) or steamed mussels served with toasted baguette ($14). Looking for something heartier? An oven-baked flatbread topped with prosciutto, ricotta and mozzarella ($16) or braised short rib ragu ($24) might do the trick. The restaurant also hosts wine tastings on the last Tuesday of every month, and offers half-price oysters and $7 glasses of wine at their daily happy hour from 4 to 7pm.
