La Compagnie des Vins Surnaturels

Wine Bar in SoHo & Chinatown

A snug melange of Gallic-themed wallpaper, svelte armchairs and tea lights, La Compagnie des Vins Surnaturels is an offshoot of a Paris bar by the same name. Head sommelier Theo Lieberman steers an impressive, French-heavy wine list, with some 600 drops and no shortage of arresting labels by the glass. A short, sophisticated menu includes housemade charcuterie and chicken rillettes.

The good-value happy hour (5pm to 7pm) offers house wines and snacks at $5 a serve.
