Profile

Snaring a seat at Bin 71's dollhouse-sized marble bar is well worth the wait. Everything on the menu—from the vast wine selection to the artisanal cheeses to the hard-to-find beers on tap—clearly has been selected with care by a team of dedicated drinkers. The barmaids take their quasi-sommelier roles seriously, too: They ask in-depth questions about customer preferences then offer tastes from many different bottles until you've found a flavorful fit. If one were to lodge a complaint, it would be that the giant flat-screen tuned to sports seems out of place among the walls lined with wine bottles and the classy white-on-cream color scheme. But the mostly older, male crowd evidently demands its presence. The prices, too, are geared to this older, flusher crowd—as befits a bar where the only ladies present seem to be on the prowl for gentlemen who can keep them in imported prosciutto and Bayley Hazen blue.
