Like the other locations of Vin Sur Vingt around the city, this UWS outpost is a good early-in-the-game date spot. It’s a small, brick-walled wine bar filled with good smells from the food being made behind the bar, like tartines and shareable charcuterie plates. The long, all-French wine list has over 50 options available by the glass, and you can also try things in flights of three or five glasses.
