Ten Bells, a nautical term, happens to be the name of the pub in London where Jack the Ripper met his victims. It’s a morbid moniker for an all-natural, organic wine bar, but that’s exactly what Yassine Bentaleb, a manager at Le Pere Pinard, and Fabrice Vautrin, his partner there and also an owner of Les Enfants Terribles, named their Lower East Side venture. In addition to wines procured by partner Philippe Essonne (also a GM at Pere Pinard) from small producers in Europe, Oregon, and Morocco, the 30-seat spot serves cheese from Essex Market, cold cuts such as wild-boar sausage and bresaola carpaccio, and small dishes such as red beets salad with pistachios.
Picnics with a view, roller-skating nostalgia, and a party for gay headbangers.
