Did I tell you I live right next to a wine bar? Probably a little too ideal for me, my apartment sits in the same building as the Brooklyn Heights Wine Bar. With a more relaxed atmosphere than most Manhattan wine bars, this spot is filled with with cozy candle-lit tables and boasts an extensive wine and cocktail list.
We prefer Spanish red, so we got a bottle of Piqueras Castillo de Almansa, but the menu also includes more local bottles and even the now-popular Prosecco. We paired the wine with some marinated olives and two cheeses– one strong and one more mild. I definitely want to stop in for dinner sometime, as dishes like the Moroccan salmon and calamari with pearl pasta look too good.
It definitely beats living above the “Six Happiness” Chinese restaurant and “Wingers.”
