Aria Wine Bar
New York, NY 10014
Village Voice's Description
Everything about Aria Wine Bar is as twinkling and precious as the lights wound around their portico outside. A ridiculously quaint spot in a ridiculously quaint part of the West Village, the menu is astoundingly well-crafted and charmingly executed for the reasonable prices. The beets and goat cheese, mac and cheese with real black truffle, and standard issue tiramisu will impress. Not to mention the wine itself, which is quality but with most of the selection still under $10 a glass. Between the neighborhood, value, and cuteness factor, it's ideal for a date, parents or a gathering of girlfriends.
Tips from foursquare
With seating for 35 spots & a focus on wine, the kitchen will be electric-powered as it turns out a menu of Venetian small plates for snacking at the white tile bar or communal wooden table.
The cocktails here set Aria apart from other West Village wine bars -- give them a shot.
Many of the wines have interesting back stories, like they’re from funky organic vineyards or made by fearless female vintners. Also, two words: Venetian meatballs.
Fantastic find! Vintage cocktails. Wines by woman winemakers and amazing Venetian small plates called cicchetti! Great addition to the hood.
Private seating downstairs for your next birthday party.
