A cozy spot just off Seventh Ave’s bustle, Vin Sur Vingt is a slender wine bar with a strip of bar seating and a quaint row of two-seat tables, perfect for a first date. Warning: if you come for a pre-dinner drink, you’ll inevitably be charmed into staying through dinner as you munch on the excellent selection of bar bites.

The reasonably priced all-French wine list (with over 50 options by the glass) keeps locals coming back for seconds.
