I went to this store on New Year's Eve. It's clearly the place to go when you need good, inexpensive liquor in Alphabet City. The place was packed, as it usually tends to be at night. The staff is very friendly and eager to help. The selection is varied, and the staff even gives you tips on mixing drinks, if you have any questions. Overall, it's a charming store, with an old-school feel to it. Definitely worth taking a trip to if you're close by. Make sure to stop by the deli next door--owned by the same family!
A wonderful wine store. They have excellent wines at every price point. The French wines in particular are outstanding. I have been a customer for years, and have never gotten a bad bottle. I used them for a wedding with over a hundred guests for three days: the wines and their prices were great. Many guests gave compliments on the wine.
Service was fantastic, only to be outdone by the food. The risotto was cooked to perfection. Crostini was layered with a ricotta that is amazingly creamy. We ordered a few glasses of wine, my favorite was the Riesling. Then the desert - an unbelievable mousse that was heavenly. We look forward to going back.
