At IL POSTO ACCANTO—sister bar of the popular East Village eatery Il Baggato—the focus is on, you guessed it, Italian wines, whether by the glass, quarter- or half-carafe, or bottle. The full-bodied Chianti Classico (La Sala '98, $36 bottle) and olive-hinted Barbera d'Alba (Bric La Ginestra '97, $36 bottle) paired nicely with a salami-and-cheese plate ($14), but best of all is the atmosphere: the hunk of cured beef laid out behind the L-shaped bar, the careful inspection of every glass for spots, the stamped-tin ceiling and the grapevines that hug it, and the fresh-cut flowers and candelabras that grace the communal table. Unfortunately, there's no beer—not even a single Peroni—to be found.
