The gorgeous, dark-wood wraparound counter that constitutes the nucleus of this wine bar encourages communal banter and, even better, tutorials from the sommelier, who will gladly curate a wine flight from the over 150-strong vintage list. Candles and smooth jazz scream “Yes, this is a wine bar,” but Lelabar makes up for it in restraint and size: It’s not too tiny, too crowded, nor too reliant on taxidermy décor. Panini sandwiches, cheese-and-charcuterie planks, and cookies from Macarune bakery highlight the small-plates offering.
