Drinks Maggie Hoffman 4 comments

Ardesia in Hell's Kitchen has an impressive cocktail list—and there's not a spirit to be found at their bar. That's right: since their liquor license is wine and beer only, they can't serve gin, bourbon, or vodka, but bartender Damon Gravina has crafted a collection of complex and delicious wine-based cocktails that put sangria to shame. For inspiration, he looked to some of the flavors inherent in wine: fruit and spice, to start. From there, he experimented with vermouth, bitters, and a variety of infusions. More

Ardesia: A Neighborhood Wine Bar Worth Seeking Out

New York Ed Levine 16 comments

What I found at Ardesia was mostly so delicious that I'm kicking myself for not making my way there earlier. A wine bar with distinctive, carefully crafted food is a fairly rare specimen in this town, and that's just what Ardesia is. If I could walk to it from my apartment, I would be there once or twice a week. It's an adult place that's contemporary without seeming suffocatingly hip. More
