Eric Woods and Jai Jai Greenfield — former Wall-Streeters who opened Harlem Vintage in 2004, at the time the neighborhood’s only wine shop — have expanded into the space next door and opened Harlem’s first wine bar. Nectar is a smart, modern joint with snow-colored walls, bar stools, and a curved white ceiling that gives the place a bright and inviting feel. As suggested by the name, fruit, flowers, and earth are the key themes of Nectar’s selection of 30 or so reds and whites. With varietals ranging from pinotage to viognier, the list adventures into the less-trodden realms beyond cabs and chardonnay. Most can be had by the glass, at prices ranging from $8 to $14, and in $15 flights of three, 2-ounce tasting portions. Rounding out the list are sparkling wines, rosés, and a selection of “stickys” (Australian for dessert wine). The food menu is limited, but the cheese and charcuterie menu is impressive; a selection of Jacques Torres chocolate, as well as beer, sake, tea, and coffee are also available.
