Ninth Avenue Vintner

The motto of this tiny storefront in Hell's Kitchen reads "Warm Place, Warm People, Cool Wine".  I agree with this statement but would also add in amazing cheese, delicious meat and incredible beer. Talk about packing a lot of personality into a little space.

Mr. T and I stopped in the other day and snacked on a delicious little tray of Manchego Cheese and Prosciutto di Parma.  The friendly guys behind the bar were more than happy to chat about different meat and cheese pairings and brought out a nice bowl of bread.  

Vintner had just celebrated its' anniversary and in honor of the big occasion they filled the taps with some rare beers from Goose Island like the Bourbon County Cherry and Coffee Stout. I was nervous a big stout would be too much on such a hot day but it was just as delicious as always.  

 The space had a constant flow of locals coming in and out, be it to sip on some wine or gather groceries for the week.  This is a great neighborhood spot to wile away the afternoon.
