New York, NY 10003
Village Voice's Description
Bar JamÃ³n offers the wine list of champions/conquistadors. You'll find nearly 600 varieties here, culled from Asturias, Cantabria, La Rioja, and 14 other spots in the general nexus of Spain. Blanco, rosado, and tinto are the primary types of wine, and they're all damn good, based on the numerous awards this selection has received over the years. And considering how JamÃ³n's modest, wine-filled, no-gimmicks interior is always brimming, it seems the youngsters have caught on. With that said, please don't have the "We'll have to come back here later!" conversation when you encounter a crowded room here--stake out your territory and strike when a person or two departs. A helping of sobrasada and a beverage recommended by one of the kind mustachioed bartenders is worth the wait.
