Over the past several days, we’ve had the opportunity to visit several spots, some of the recently-opened variety. The wine bars include Hell’s Kitchen’s Wine Escape and Nolita’s Clos New York. We also visited East Village’s Wise Men and LES’ Beverly’s and Up Stairs Bar. We’ll provide more details in forthcoming posts. In short, we liked Wine Escape, Wise Men and Beverly’s. The other two were okay, but there are numerous other spots we need to hit before we return to those two.
