Temperance Wine Bar
Where to Grab a Drink in NYC Right Now
When you’re tired of drinking subpar wine while lazing out on your couch, head to the newly-opened Temperance Wine Bar in the West Village for some highly-curated options in a 1960s-era dining room designed by the same team who formerly did De Maria. Here, owners Jonathan Rexroat and Devin Rochford offer a list of over a hundred wines by the glass created by sommelier A.J. Ojeda-Pons (The Lambs Club, Mercado Little Spain). Whether you’re looking to sip on grapes grown in the Hudson River Valley or from countries like Morocco, choose from natural wines, year-round rosés, lesser known varietals, and more while pairing them with dishes like house-cured sardine with butter bruschetta; duck meatballs; porgy tiradito with hatch chiles and lime; and sweet & spicy cauliflower.
