Wine Bar in East Village & Lower East Side

French for 'in olden days,' Jadis channels a bit of European nostalgia with its worn brick walls, antique fixtures and warmly lit interior. You'll find around two dozen or so wines by the glass, with French labels taking pride of place. Snacks include escargots, salads, pressed sandwiches, homemade quiches and rich cheeses.

Start the evening early with happy-hour specials (including $5 glasses of wine) from 5pm to 7pm.
