Opened by Lawrence Bondulich of fellow Upper West Side wine bar Bin 71, Barcibo Enoteca is a traditionally minded vino-and-small-plates institution: dimly lit, furnished with marble-topped tables, and patronized by the kind of well-heeled crowd that fills the aisles of nearby Lincoln Center. Barcibo offers an Italian-only wine list with more than 130 options by the bottle and 40 by the glass, along with rare Scotches and bourbons like A.H. Hirsch Reserve. The intimate, two-level space has a cozy feel—the second floor is really just a landing accessed by a short wooden staircase—suggesting the casual-but-stiff vibe of your rich friend’s parents’ pristine kitchen. The staff knows their stuff and is more than happy to rattle off recommendations and pairing suggestions.
Picnics with a view, roller-skating nostalgia, and a party for gay headbangers.
