We had a chance to visit some new spots and some old spots this weekend. Of the new spots, we enjoyed Vanguard Wine Bar in Manhattan’s Kips Bay neighborhood the most. Solid wine selection and a heckuva cheddar cheese dip. One or two more spots like that and Murray Hill/Kips Bay will have a serious wine bar crawl on its hands. We’ll have more details of our visit in a forthcoming post. Across the street was the reliable Paddy Reilly’s, the only all-Guiness tap bar in Manhattan. Seriously, this place has eight taps (one for each letter in the word Guinness) and each tap pours Guinness. So, we just had to stop in for a pint there. Other notable spots we visited: The Windsor, Marshall Stack and Boulton & Watt.
