When Colin and Renée Alevras's Tasting Room outgrew its prohibitively tiny East Village space, the couple moved the restaurant to larger premises in Nolita. They've since reopened the original location as the wine bar and café it was perhaps always meant to be, with a daily-changing blackboard menu and an all-American wine list. But the modesty of the setting can't curb Colin's aggressively seasonal, Greenmarket-dependent style, which expresses itself in rustic bar snacks like buttery heirloom popcorn, 3-Corner Field Farm's sheep's-milk-cheese-and-onion tart, and pheasant terrine with pear mustard. The café has also inherited the restaurant's custom-built Synesso espresso machine.
