8th Street Wine Cellar
28 West 8th Street
New York, NY 10011

Wine bars promise so much, but frequently stumble when it comes time to deliver. I mean, it’s not really too much to ask, is it? All we want is some Charcuterie, Gorgonzola Stuffed Sirloin Sliders, a Wild Mushroom Quesadilla and some cheeses. I mean, is that too much to ask for? Oh yeah, and wines, lots of good wine too. Not if you’re dropping onto the 8th Street Wine Cellar.

The menu is relatively simply, befitting the place’s wine bar status, but perfectly suitable for cleansing the palate and challenging some of the wines, and any preconceived notions, you may have carried in with you. Arrive early and enjoy the relative quiet of the space before it fills with men, women and voices; but if you don’t mind sharing your space and your wine, bring a smile and a generous hand as things can get pretty cozy, especially around the bar.

Some recent values on the list:

2009 La Fiera Pinot Grigio $29
2006 Chateau Famaey Cahors $37
2009 Dobbs Family Grande Assemblage $55
2006 Paumanok Merlot  $35

    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!
