Terroir Wine Bar

413 E. 12th St. New York, NY 10009 | East Village | 646-602-1300

Location Description:

Terroir has a ridiculous amount of wine--a whole binder of the stuff, actually, packed with lists and lists of semi-sweet white wines made with perfume-y riesling grapes, pages of discourse on wine craft, and hyperbolic praise for its producers. Meanwhile, the menu features small plates with downplayed grandeur, such as the "Fried Stuff" section and its gorgonzola-infused beet risotto balls. An impressive variety, overall, considering Terroir squeezes it all into a tiny, 24-seat, bookshelf-equipped, sepia-tinted room. This wine bar is a superstar collaboration between restaurateurs Paul Grieco (a bigger wine connoisseur than Bacchus) and Marco Canora (an Iron Chef), and that's made clear.
