Latest C'est le Vin news and reviews

C'est le Vin just feels like Brothers for a higher tax bracket.

Why? They don't serve meals, just nibbly things, yet are on the Eats list; their focus is on booze; their music is piped out onto the sidewalk; and they're often crowded and there's nowhere to put your coat.

Why not? C'est le Vin is more unique, and the owner obviously pours a lot of care, love, and expertise into the wine selection and atmosphere. You're not as likely to get groped by a frat boy at C'est le Vin - though both locales might subject you to painfully loud conversations about Kanye West between guys in popped collars.
