Tel: 212 625 9463's insider take:

Terroir eschews wine-snob culture, while welcoming genuine wine fanatics with open arms. It does come with credentials: Co-owner Paul Grieco used to oversee the wine service at Gramercy Tavern. The wine bar's menu (which is not so much a menu as a quirky three-ring binder filled with cheeky cartoons, poems, songs, and essays) features more than 50 wines by the glass, many of them obscure and, according to Grieco, underappreciated—a whopping three pages are fully devoted to Riesling. Servers are exceedingly friendly, and decidedly unstingy with the pouring; they'll guide even neophytes through the offerings. Small plates are phenomenal, including the legendary veal and ricotta meatball sub and the calamari salad with smoked chickpeas and garlic. There is also a smaller (original) location in the East Village, near Hearth restaurant, also co-owned by Grieco.—Alexis Swerdloff
