Aldo Sohm is the more casual wine bar from the people who run Le Bernardin (just across the way). They serve some small bites, and they have some surprisingly affordable wines. This place is deep in the center of corporate midtown, however, so unless you work around here, you just saw the Rockettes, or you’re about to ball out at Le Bernardin, you probably won’t end up here. If you do, however, it’s sort of like drinking in the lobby of a really nice condo.

Racines is a really good place to drink wine, but this Tribeca restaurant is a really bad spot to eat food.
The Shakespeare @ The William
If you’re looking for an English pub in Midtown, The Shakespeare is quite possibly the nicest. Stop by for happy hour.
