A missive from Eater's wine columnist Talia Baiocchi. Check back later for her full Decanted column.
Williamsburg’s new subterranean cocktail lounge-cum-wine bar over on 44 Berry, The Counting Room, pulls a Bar Henry and offers all of the wines on their 60-bottle list (save the bubbly) by the half bottle. The list’s quirk factor is high (leaning on small production, natural wines from the Old World) and the prices charitable (not one split over $33), making this just about the best new spot to have a glass in the hood.
Highlights: Vino di Tavola Bianco ‘Montemarino’ 2007, Cascina degli Ulivi $24/48; Arbois Rouge 2007, Jacques Puffeney $30/60; ‘Pechigo’ Rouge 2006, Sylvain Saux $22/44.
