CBS has released its list of New York City's Nine Best Wine Bars and, with the exception of wondering why they stopped at only 9, we pretty much agree. Sweet Revenge is on the list, as it should be. Back in March we extolled the virtues of owner Marlo Scott's amazing cupcakes & wine/beer pairings.
The Ten Bells is also featured in CBS's Top Nine. Last month we discovered that The Ten Bells carries one of our favorite wines, Jean Foillard’s Côte du Py, an amazing red from the village of Morgon in Beaujolais.
Also on the list: City Winery, a cavernous space with a huge wine cellar and frequent live music performances. Over the years at City Winery we've seen a performance by Duncan Sheik, attended a VIP party with R.E.M., and enjoyed the music of David Bowie paired with an eclectic assortment of wines. (Of courseBonny Doon 'Le Cigare Volant' 06 pairs perfectly with Space Oddity. Duh!)
