Vin Sur Vingt: West Village

IMG_0302In the West Village is a little spot with a wonderful wine list and a melted brie dish that will wow you with its first bite! This simple yet delectable dish is a must order with the rosé of the day, which is usually chosen by Sebastien the owner of Vin Sur Vingt. He is French, so he know’s French wine and food very well. He opened Vin Sur Vingt in the West Village first and now has locations in the NoMad district of NYC as well as in the Plaza Food Hall!

He keeps the wine list approachable and creative offering Bordeaux Rosé, Champagne, Loire Valley Wines, and even some Alsatian Riesling’s. Flight programs are popular with the regulars and weeknight diners as well as there is always someone there to recommend a wine or talk you through the wine list!

Remember dish I mentioned in the beginning with the melted brie? Thats the TARTINE DE BRIE AU MIEL, and it is out of this world YUM! Pair this with some Rosé Champagne for one heck of a pairing; this appetizer is also the perfect size for sharing.

IMG_1159I also tried the TARTINE DE JAMBON DE PAYS which is Country Ham with Basil Pesto on top of baked French bread. The pesto went beautifully with the Bordeaux Rosé as the ham balanced the tartness of this vibrant wine, while the pesto made the fresh raspberry notes really pop!

For those seeking a cozy little French wine bar with a great menu, stylish decor and service head over to the west village and visit Vin Sur Vingt… you will not be disappointed!
