The March Wine Hit List: Il Buco, Lola Taverna, Decibel, Winner, and More

By

If the Wine Hit List is coming out of hibernation, that’s only because we needed a bit of time to reset after the holidays. (You didn’t think it was because of dry January, did you?). Anyway we’re here just in time for spring, and for New York’s gradual hops toward reopening. And after a very long stretch, the prospect of sitting inside a restaurant and enjoying a glass of wine — safely, of course — again feels within reach.

Also, after a year of wine directors emptying their cellars to run lean, we’re happy to report that wine lists around the city look a lot more robust again. OK, perhaps there’s less trophy-hunter fodder, but that’s fine. Our prediction? This spring will be all about enjoying bottles with friends that were meant for drinking, not to fetishize.

Anyway, in the mix are a classic Italian destination in ever-finer form, two top sommeliers bringing their talents to the same stretch of Soho, a longtime sake haven teleporting its vibe to the patio, and much more. The latest Wine Hit List is here, and we’re ready to drink something good.
