An around-the-corner boîte perfect for a sexy assignation or a meet-up with a good friend, this little wine bar manages to keep things relaxed and chic simultaneously. Choose a glass from the nicely priced, eclectic European reds, whites or rosés scrawled on the chalkboard and share a couple small plates and soups from the tiny kitchen. The salt-cod brandade—a heavenly cream- and garlic-heavy fish mash—should not be missed. KELLY CLARKE.
What to drink: Ask your server for recommendations on this week's wines; pair a glass with a plate of chicken liver and currant paté.
Happy hour: Two bucks off glass pours 5-6 pm nightly.
Entertainment: Good lighting.
