Vanguard Wine Bar

189 Amsterdam Ave., New York
(212) 799-9463

This Upper West Side wine bar is one of my favorites. Cozy benches and cushions but bit over priced. It’s humming on a week day. We got there after Mets, getting crowded from 6pm and on. It’s convenient to Lincoln Center and the food is fine:

  1. Mini caviar trio: smoked trout roe, wasabi tobiko on blini creme fraiche and chives
  2. Combo meats n cheeses
  3. Arugula walnut and grape salad

  3. “Original Malbec” Anne de Joyeuse 2014
