The Wine Hit List, Peak Summer Edition: Dame, LittleMad, Da Toscano, and More


We’re in this beautiful moment of grace right now, it seems, where New York wine lists are concerned. Who knows how long it’ll last, but we’ve had a few months since most restaurants have reopened, providing time for everyone to restock the wine fridge. An end to much-hated tariffs has buyers in a good mood. Wine selections are flush all over town.

And, obviously, we’re all extra thirsty after the past 16 months. So whether you’re game for patio rosé, or looking to go large, your wine-toting friends have you covered. So let’s dive into the latest: a remarkable split-personality list devised by one of the city’s top seafood chefs, the return of a longtime pro in new (and accessible) uptown digs, savory selections that play to some brilliant neo-Korean cooking, and much more. The Wine Hit List for high summer is here, and we’re ready to fill our glasses.
