Finally Labor Day weekend is just around the corner and dreams of a four day weekend is blurring up my brain as I try to get through this work week. It’s here in a matter of hours, and the nice comfortable sunny weather that’s forecast invites us to enjoy some good wine and tasty eats al fresco in NYC. Really, it’s just too nice out to eat inside as the weather has been wonderful lately, as it has been for most of the Summer season. Enjoy it now before another bone chilling Winter hits us. Il Vino Wine Bar is just steps from our building and an easy choice to grab a table outside with a bottle of wine to cap off the long work week.
Il Vino is an intimate and cozy little wine bar on the Upper East Side in Yorkville. Nice selection of wines, many from Italy, but also from Spain-USA-Australia, etc. Prices are decent and they also feature happy hour deals on select wines during the week. Also offered is a small tapas style menu. Cheese and fruit plates, olives, puff pasty, along with some terrific pizzas to share, among others. The margherita pizza we had during our last visit was delicious, and prepared so fresh. Definitely a relaxing spot for conversation and chilling out over a glass of good wine. Perfect spot to take a date as a nightcap, or to meet up and start the evening. As for me, it’s all so tempting to drop in for a glass of vino on the way home from a long day at work. Every day. So close to our place it’s dangerous! Continue reading Labor Day Weekend dreams of wine and pizza in NYC.
