24 Harrison St., New York, NY (Greenwich & Hudson Sts.)
Terroir Tribeca is a wine bar for wine snobs, yet a welcome place for quaffers of all levels. Located on a shaded stretch of Harrison Street, the subterranean space is proving to be just as charming as its East Village predecessor. Operated by Paul Grieco and Marco Canora, the extensive wine list contains several unique offerings: Finger Lakes Riesling on tap, a trend started recently in San Francisco that has yet to hit the Big Apple, a bottle of what Grieco considers to be the greatest Italian wine ever made (Sassicaia Tenuta San Guido ’85) for $1,900, and even a selection of box wines. In addition to wine, Terroir Tribeca also serves unconventional yet delicious pairing dishes such as Bone Marrow Bruschetta, Duck Prosciutto Sandwiches, and Veal and Ricotta Meatballs. With almost three times as many seats as its little sister, the TriBeCa outpost, designed by architect Richard H. Lewis (Pulino’s, Minetta Tavern), will be able to seat a great many more wine devotees.
