One of New York’s most ambitious, sophisticated wine bars features equally refined food from chef Diego Moya.

94 Chambers St., New York, NY, 10007



Known For

The lowdown

The reason to visit this small, unassuming Tribeca dining room is Master Sommelier Pascaline Lepeltier’s improbably deep, mind-bogglingly elegant wine list, which is stocked with almost anything an oenophile could dream up, and through which she will happily guide non-oenophiles. (A recent suggestion of a gros manseng/petit manseng/petit courbu white blend from cult producer Domaine Arretxea was both surprising and revelatory.) A menu of austere, hyper-seasonal food from chef Diego Moya keeps pace. Dishes might include lentils tossed with crème fraÎche and topped with trout roe; a dice of cuttlefish garnished with slices of tiny young asparagus; or rosy duck breast in a delicate, barely sweet sauce of orange and Earl Grey. It all stands up to the wine without overshadowing it.
