The Shakespeare is a bar in Midtown that doesn’t smell like a wet dog or a dozen sweaty people. It’s in the bottom of a little hotel a few blocks from Bryant Park, and it’s a great place to know about if you ever have to meet friends in the area. It’s cozy, like an upscale pub in a small English town, and they serve a full lunch and dinner menu with stuff like poached salmon and shepherd’s pie.

Ardesia review image

Ardesia is first and foremost a wine bar, and a good one at that. The food is decent, but it’s secondary to what they do best, which is selecting excellent “mineral-driven” wines from all over the world.
