The much anticipated new wine bar from Le Bernardin wine director Aldo Sohm is now open for lunch and dinner. Just down the street from the No. 1 rated restaurant, the new spot will have a wine list curated by Sohm along with a food menu including paninis and salads for lunch and and array of charcuterie, cheeses, skewers and pastas for dinner. Designed by Bentel & Bentel, the team behind Le Bernardin's 2011 renovation, the 70-seat space is outfitted with high-top tables, a custom-finished oak bar which serves as a communal “sommelier table," and a private tasting room. Upstairs, the intimate Le Bernardin Privé private dining room recently opened as well. Check out both menus and stay tuned for photos of the space.
