Best Neighborhood Wine Shops

  • UPPER EAST SIDE

  • Garnet Wines & Liquors

    929 Lexington Ave.; 212-772-3211

    Huge selection—nearly 6,000 bottles, 2,100 square feet—at highly competitive price points, and expert but unsnooty staff.

  • UPPER WEST SIDE

  • Nancy’s Wines for Food

    313 Columbus Ave.; 212-877-4040

    Acker Merrill & Condit and 67 Wine & Spirits are bigger, but Nancy’s wins for its pairing tips.

  • MIDTOWN EAST

  • Winfield Flynn

    558 Third Ave.; 212-679-4455

    Excellent but not overwhelming selection, and dog biscuits are free at the counter for the local pooches.

  • WEST VILLAGE

  • Winesby.com

    23 Jones St.; 212-242-5144

    A tiny (100-bottle) selection, super-carefully chosen, and delivery from Wall Street to Harlem.

  • LOWER EAST SIDE

  • De-Vino Wine Boutique

    30 Clinton St.; 212-228-0073

    Owner Gabrio Tosti di Valminuta handpicks the mostly Italian offerings and has relationships with many wineries. He delivers too.

  • FINANCIAL DISTRICT

  • Pasanella and Son, Vintners

    115 South St.; 212-233-8383

    Wine novices are drawn by the posted food-and-wine pairings; oenophiles, to the tasting room in back.

  • BOERUM HILL/COBBLE HILL/CARROLL GARDENS

  • Smith & Vine

    268 Smith St.; 718-243-2864

    Clever and helpful signage, expertise and enthusiasm when you want help, and a reliable $10-and-under table.
