Hillside

Meet Hillside, the cozy wine bar and cafe attached to Vinegar Hill House in Brooklyn. The food menu may be small, but everything is fresh and fantastic, especially the oysters – perfectly briney and creamy. Their wine list rotates weekly, with 20 to 30 offerings available by the glass alone. Hillside doesn’t accept reservations, but since most of the focus is on its next door neighbor, it’s Brooklyn’s best kept secret. The atmosphere is comfortable and romantic – a perfect mini-escape from the city for new couples and long-term lovers alike.
