To mutilate an old adage, wine doesn't sophisticate people. People sophisticate people. So why does every wine bar in New York seem to pipe in that glassy, thin, innocuous piano pop, that nü-elevator nonsense? Is it supposed to add to the soi-adult atmosphere? City Winery, the intimate new wine space in Tribeca, seems to have solved the music crisis: They book live acts several times a week, with excellent taste in the city's indie scene. Brilliant Canadian classical-popster Patrick Watson, venerable guitarist Leo Kottke, gritty rock icon Marianne Faithfull, and more have taken the Winery stage this year. Cabernet sauvignon has never tasted so cool.
