Accordingly, let’s consult the great Rumi when making our weekend plans:
“Either give me more wine, or leave me alone.” —Rumi
Okay, Rumi. Chill.
Here, have City Vineyard, a more restaurant-like effort from the City Winery team. It’s Hudson-adjacent, it has a roof, and it’s now open at Pier 26 in Tribeca.
Your real estate options include a dining room with floor-to-ceiling windows (for any, ahem, rainy days), a pier-level patio with ivy hanging all over the place and that roof. Whichever you go with, do we even need to tell you that a date should start and end well here?
As for the wines, they’re mostly their own, and mostly on tap, straight from the barrel. But there’s a more concerted effort to have you taking your meal here than at Winery. Think paella balls, which shouldn’t sound appealing but do. Also a lobster roll. And we know what you’re thinking—great, another lobster roll—but this one is served on bread made with the residual yeast of the wine (they call that lees), so there’s something to consider.
You should take a look around, because it’s beautiful, and you should expect that it won’t not be busy, ever.
Feel better now, Rumi?
