If you really like natural wine, then you’ll find a short wine list entirely made up of them at L’Accolade. But considering there are better natural wine programs all over the city (at places like Ruffian, The Ten Bells, Four Horsemen, and Have & Meyer), a better reason to check out this West Village French spot is for a casual date. Make a reservation for a table in the loud, brick-walled dining room, or try to get a couple seats at the bar, and share some charcuterie or small plates while discussing your feelings on natural wines.
