This backroom wine bar sets aside some of Savore's tables for snacking and sipping.. The Scene Marked by a bright blue awning, the entrance to this SoHo wine bar is simply an alternate doorway to the Savore restaurant. Guests head to the back end of the dining room where wine racks line the walls. When the space isn't busy, oenophiles are led directly to the tall stools at the restaurant's well-lit, mahogany bar--to save the waiters some extra steps. Decorative touches are sparse at this cream-colored Tuscan trattoria, which helps the smart-casual clientele to focus on food and drink.
The Draw Wine is available by the bottle or quarto, urging guests to linger, while the small carafe is meant to be savored slowly by a single patron. Friendly servers are eager to suggest pairings with light fare from the Mediterranean menu, or recommend their favorite good-value vino--like the smooth Daniello, a Cabernet and Sangiovese blend with muted notes of blackberry, or the Orvieto, a fresh, fruit-forward white.
