Exclusivity is sacrificed for elbow room at the sequel to the original East Village Terroir—arguably the city’s most popular, if also most claustrophobic, wine bar since it opened two years ago. The two-month-old Tribeca offshoot has easily three times the square footage of its oxygen-deprived sibling. As at the original, you can pair chef-owner Marco Canora’s veal-and-ricotta meatballs ($17) with an unexpected varietal from Slovenia or Greece, and all wines are available in cheaper three-ounce “tastes” as well. But here, you can also order a delectable sandwich, like the veal and peppers on Italian bread ($11), to go along with a similarly informal drink presentation: wine on tap (currently a bright, almost effervescent Riesling from the Finger Lakes).
