If you are a wine lover you must visit Crush on 57th and Lexington. It is the most aesthetically pleasing wine store I have ever been in. The wavy, backlit wall of wine and the gorgeous tasting room made to look like a giant wine barrel. It is just a very cool design. I was greeted immediately by the staff and given some great recommendations. The vibe is very laid back and not snotty at all. Don't miss the temperature controlled glass room at the back of the store where all of the high end, old and rare wines are stored. That said, I picked up a few $10 gems that were more of a fit to my budget. Overall a great experience and highly recommended.

Crush is a stylish wine store, but it's the great service and good wine that keep me coming back. I found some delicious Champagnes and some off-beat Austrian varietals that were a hit with my friends at a recent dinner party. They also carry some interesting sakes and some small-batch spirits that I plan to try soon. Definitely worth a visit.
