This upstate spot serves natural-leaning wines alongside an ultrashareable vegetable- and pasta-driven menu. To connect the neighborhood to wine, the restaurant offers chances to meet winemakers, intimate pairings dinners and educational seminars. It recently started offering all Champagne selections on its bottle list at retail value.
From The Sommelier: “Small, powerhouse bottle lists, where you want to drink everything on the list. Big lists that go on for pages can have many gems, but can also make the selection process tedious or overwhelming. Small, well thought-out lists are good for the guest and good for the restaurant; guests know the restaurant team can really get behind every bottle, that they are not just trying to fill holes. And for the restaurants the economics are simply better when you don’t have to sit on a gigantic inventory.” —Heather Lavine, Peck’s Arcade
