New York City's Top Wine Lists

Great picks to make any occasion special

New York City's Top Wine Lists Wine lists. The truth is that I like reading them more than ordering off one! I don't like the exorbitant markups and limited selections that characterize the majority of wine lists I am faced with, but sometimes a great BYOB option is not on the table. While most of my dining out is, in fact, done BYOB, there are certain situations that call for ordering off the list and the truth of the matter is, that in these situations I am always choosing a restaurant based primarily on what that list has to offer.

After all, if you're going to drop a load of cash on a bottle of wine, it better be good; but beyond that, it better be part of a killer meal. I do have a short list of some spots I've favored in the past and while this is by no means a complete list, it is a start. I am hoping you all can help me fill it out, both in New York as well as in the cities that you know best. Feel free to add your favorites to the comments belo, and if you'd like to take it one step further and submit your own selection for inclusion in future editorial features on Snooth, please check out our Editorial Submission page.

    Ditto on Otto! We had a thoroughly enjoyable meal with delicious, fairly priced pairings.

    Thanks for including 8th Street Cellar - with its great happy hour (I think $18 bottles, 4p-7p), it's a favorite and reliable neighborhood gem!

  • During happy hour they @ 8th Street Wine Cellar, they offer $18 bottles, and a decent selection too. This is where I got my friend, a die-hard pinot grigio drinker for the 10+ years I've known her, to try something different ... and the rest is history. We continue to go here and she relies on me to pick the bottle from the happy hour list.

    Love the love for the wine bar! It's a great place to try something new, which is part of what makes a good wine bar good!
