A review of Vanguard Wine Bar on Manhattan's Upper West Side

Located at 189 Amsterdam Ave. on Manhattan’s Upper West Side, Vanguard Wine Bar is the spacious second location of the Vanguard empire.  This uptown location offers 28 wines by glass/bottle (beer and wine only here, no hard alcohol).  The menu divides up red and whites by sub sections as described by body/taste (mild-mannered, bold, etc). The space feels as though the bar been around for a while (though it’s not more than 2-3 years old as of this writing).  Food offerings can best be described as snacks and small plates plus the requisite cheese/charcuterie.  We enjoyed our visit to Vanguard; it’s a great addition to any NYC UWS wine bar crawl!
