New, 16 comments
Gramercy Tavern by Daniel Krieger

Here are the 12 best wine lists in New York, according to Times wine writer Eric Asimov, who makes the case that this city is home to "the greatest selection of wine lists in the world." His picks range from the "geeky French" at Reynard to the "new and deep" at Pearl & Ash, but all, Asimov writes, are "products of imagination, dedication, energy, resources and a clear point of view." The full list, with classifications, is below. And for Asimov's choices on what to drink at each, from the best deals to the weird finds, do take the time to read the article.

Best All Around: Gramercy Tavern and Rouge Tomate
High-End French: Daniel
Short and Smart: Charlie Bird
New and Deep: Pearl & Ash
Italian: Babbo
Geeky Italian: Franny's
Geeky French: Reynard
