Some New Looks in Drinking

A good buzz is recession-proof.

With Fashion Week around the corner, it would be nice to have a champagne food truck like Berlin did, but for now, there’s Winston’s Champagne Bar, an extremely high-end spot we read about over at Diner’s Journal. There’s a piano, and caviar, and everything is just perf for their “international clientele that presumably does not mind spending four figures on a bottle of Krug Clos du Menil 1996, or five figures on the 1979.” If that’s a little too much to swallow, Eater has the scoop on City Winery’s new downstairs restaurant, the Barrel Room, which will have eleven well-edited wines on tap, served straight from the barrel, to match food by Andres Barrera. So, sober up another season. [Diner’s Journal/NYT, Eater NY]
