Another miss on the UWS

We were excited but the food let it down. 2 of the dishes heavily over salted, and the rest just so so including a very poor choice dip with the oysters. Even half full it got very noisy despite their attempt to control the sound on the ceiling. Wine was pleasant for the choice but doesn't do enough to make us want to come back.

"The" killer UWS wine bar

This place straddles the line between wine bar and restaurant, but somehow manages to get it right whichever way you lean. I haven't seen a wines by the glass list this comprehensive in a very long time. Love that there are many organic wine selections. As good as their list is, it is possible that their food even outshines the wine. We sampled about 5 different plates, all generous portions sizes and were very pleasantly surprised with the flavors. I can't recall having a better pork chop ever, as well as a very interesting dish with squid ink and cuttlefish. It had a very down-to-earth feel and the waitress was helpful navigating the wine list for us. We will return for sure even though we live on the East Side.
