Aria Wine Bar

Cute Tapas in West Village ”Aria Wine Bar”

The ambiance is quite loud and crowded. This means it may not be the place for date night, but I definitely recommend it for a girls’ get-together!! The place itself is small with a cute atmosphere. I’m sure it depends on the day of the week, but my first and last visits here were SuPa busy. The menu is reasonable and shockingly all very tasty, too. Probably one of the best $9 beef carpaccio I have ever had in NY. (My favorite Carpaccio is still at Bar Pitti in Greenwich Village. Recently I had amazing Veal Carpaccio at Minetta Tavern, too.) I was here with myTabelog teammates, Kenta a.k.a Lord of the Forks, and my boss, Shouhei, from Japan. We enjoyed catching up and sharing the tapas plates together. They don’t take reservations for parties under six people so it can be a bit hard to make a plan to come here. This time we walked right in and were lucky that we didn’t have to wait. We sat at a long community table with other groups, most of which were girls. In fact, the crowd was 90% girls. Girls always know cute, yummy and reasonable places in city *\(^_^)/*
