Last night I spent 3+ hours at Aria Wine Bar, perhaps my favorite little whole in the wall in the city.
Darkly lit Aria serves fairly inexpensive wine in full-to-the-brim glasses and a huge variety mix of Venetian small plates and pastas on communal tables and a kitchen island-esque bar, creating a very, very intimate atmosphere. I’d recommend:
- Burratta and Prosciutto
- Mini Lamb Chops
The illuminated sidewalk view is also a great addition. Now that the weather is finally feeling like winter, Aria may very well be the perfect place to hide away and stay warm.
