If you want to drink wine in a cabin on a mountaintop, this is the closest you’re going to get in NYC. There’s even a fireplace. They also have a lot of different wines by the glass, which is perfect if you’re with someone who doesn’t know what they like. For food, there’s your standard cheese selection, and some satisfying small plates. Overall, this place is perfect for a cozy, casual glass of wine, and it will feel like a nice escape. Unless you live in a cabin.

Fletcher's Brooklyn BBQ
Fletcher's serves up some great pulled pork, and is a solid local BBQ stop if you're around Gowanus. We just wouldn't travel for it.
Runner & Stone
Don't make the trek down to Gowanus just for Runner & Stone, but if you want a reliable meal in the neighborhood, go for it.
A solid addition to Gowanus, Freek’s Mill is all about the wood-burning oven. It’s best when things don’t get too fussy.

Bocca di Bacco
Midtown wine bars are pretty high up there on the list of places you won't find us hanging out. Read away for the many reasons why. But thanks to good food and a good crowd, Bocca Di Bacco is the exception.
The Four Horsemen
Part natural wine bar, part restaurant, The Four Horsemen is one of our favorite places to drink and eat in Brooklyn.
