Best Bars and Restaurants in NYC for Wine Lovers

May 30th, 2018 | The Flavors of New York

Of all the alcoholic beverages out there, none is as revered as the fermented grape juice we call wine. After all, a drink doesn’t stay around for thousands of years for no reasons. If the Egyptians and Phoenicians, some of earliest ancient civilizations known to drink wine, were in New York today and staying at the Royalton New York Hotel, we would take them on a tour of the city’s best wine bars and restaurants...

Since this is not so, we’ve prepared a list of top-rated and widely acclaimed eateries and bars especially for our guests—or any other person coming across this post! Expect an expertly curated selection of local, regional and international wines. And since wine is always better paired with food, many of these locales offer dishes that are just as delicious as their wines.
