This wine bar is just besides Rockefeller Center. It has some outdoor tables, very nice. There is also a good wine and spirit store attached with very competitive prices.

Nice place to stop and enjoy a fairly good glass of wine. The Basseman Riesling and the Bedrock zinfandel, excellent. The lunch menu for $27.00 was good but much better the scallops!!! Many other wine choices but quite pricey. Service was good and ambience average.
