    A Respite From Gluttony in This Week’s Magazine So you enjoyed your immense Thanksgiving meal and then indulged in logy reveries the next few days — standing in front of the refrigerator eating stuffing with a serving spoon, building turkey BLTs to watch the game with on Saturday. By now you’re thinking, Enough with the big meals already! We’re here to accommodate. In this week’s issue, the Underground Gourmet determines what makes a quality coffee bar (tapas and no wi-fi, for starters) and then introduces us to a new wine bar in the West Village and a new entry in Mike Jaramillo’s Williamsburg empire. Also: 5 Ninth’s Daniel “Chino” Parilla provides a highly digestible turnip recipe and a panel of star sommeliers make mincemeat out of the advice given by wine-store clerks. It’s all easy going down, and just what you need after the exertions of the past few days.
