Keuka Kafe is a wine bar right on Queens Boulevard in Forest Hills, and along with a food menu ranging from escargots to chicken tikka masala to pizza, they have nearly 50 wines available by the glass. A lot of the wine list is focused on options from the Finger Lakes, like a few different rieslings and cabernet francs, as well as varietals that are native to the area, such as Catawba and Niagara. Whether you want to focus on those or the ones in the “unusual grapes” section of the menu - really unusual sh*t that your phone will definitely autocorrect - you should build your own flight and try any three wines on the menu for $20.
