Five fantastic NYC wine bars with charcuterie

For those who enjoy unique culinary adventures, charcuterie is something truly special

A glass of wine is always nice, but when paired with charcuterie, the experience can be exquisite. If you're not familiar, charcuterie is the culinary art of preparing meat products such as salami, ham, sausage, terrines, galantines, ballotines, pâtés, and confit. For those who enjoy unique culinary adventures, charcuterie is something truly special. Here are five fantastic NYC wine bars with a focus on charcuterie. Wine and dine to your heart's content as you sample these delectable delights all around The Big Apple.



Casual and cozy, Charc is a 25-seat restaurant and bar catering to artisanal charcuterie-lovers who enjoy unique flavors and meat-focused fare. Choose from smoked paprika cured pork loin, foie gras mousse, pork and fig pâté, or one of Charc's other equally-delicious charcuterie offerings. Cheeses, sandwiches, small plates, and tastings are also available, along with meal-enhancing sides like pear jam, tarragon mustard, and cornichons. Wines from all over the world are offered by the glass or bottle, perfect for providing the grape goodness that goes so well with a plate of Charc's house-made charcuterie.

Aldo Sohm Wine Bar


Relaxing and remarkably designed, Aldo Sohm Wine Bar is a midtown favorite for fine wines and creative charcuterie. With dishes meant for sharing, this spot is perfect for dates, meetups with friends, or an after-work happy hour. Whether you're in the mood for Champagne, rosé, pinot, or sherry, Aldo Sohm Wine Bar's by-the-glass list is extensive and impressive. And for the charcuterie? Divine. How does wild boar sausage sound? Chicken liver mousse, duck rillettes, and beef bresaola are all favorites, but why stop there? Go all out and order "The Tower" featuring an assortment of all their charcuterie offerings along with condiments and a fresh, warm baguette. Now that's Sohm wine bar!

Bar Boulud


Located in the heart of NYC's glorious Lincoln Center, Bar Boulud is famed chef Daniel Boulud's nod to French fare in a casual bistro setting. Terrines and pâtés are all the rage at this Upper West Side corner spot, with both indoor and outdoor seating, weather permitting. "Bar Boulud features artisanally-made French charcuterie, with recipes from award winning Parisian charcutier Gilles Verot, a third generation charcutier with boutiques in Paris." Feast on fabulous foie gras, truffle, and port, or select the squab, raisin, and prune dish. Braised lamb is always luscious, as is their award-winning head cheese. Pair your charcuterie with Bar Boulud's house-made pickled vegetables, coriander carrots, or celery remoulade to take the taste to new heights. Beneath the restaurant is an elaborate wine cellar, housing bottles from all over the world. Be it Burgundy, Beaujolais, or bubbles, Bar Boulud's sommelier is ready to pour.

1900 Broadway, New York, NY



Modern and made for wine and charcuterie cravers, Ardesia is a hip and happening spot for tasty treats, sublime sips, and an overall chic atmosphere. Their wines are fairly priced, and the list is impressive, with plenty of reds, whites, sparkling, and roses, as well as a decadent dessert wine to end the night on a sweet note. Charcuterie is only $6.00 apiece, but each plate tastes like a million bucks. Served with house-made pickles, whole grain mustard, and crusty bread, options include pig and fig terrine and wild boar salami that tempt the taste buds with savory sophistication. Pair your charcuterie with one (or more) of Ardesia's cheeses like ricotta, raw sheep, or goat, all as delicious as their charcuterie. Be sure to stop by for a "Bottle & Board Sunday" for perfectly-priced pairings and off-menu selections.

510 W. 52nd St., New York, NY

Morrell Wine Bar & Café


Rockefeller Center is an NYC go-to-destination, and Morrell Wine Bar & Café is the place to eat if wine and charcuterie are what you're hungry for. "The wine bar features over 75 wines by the glass, one of the largest selections in the city, and the company's massive Rare Wine Vault includes some of the most difficult to find bottles in the world." Choose a flight of red or white to have the opportunity to sample more than one wine, and pair each glass with charcuterie that is as amazing as the Rockefeller Center atmosphere that surrounds you. Speck is always sublime, as is duck pâté, foie gras, or wild boar sausage. Why not get the chef's selection and sample a variety of charcuterie and cheese, making ordering simple? You must top off the meal with a plate of assorted chocolate truffles or an apple tart. You are in The Big Apple, after all!

Finally, we are done with 2020! Between all the highs and lows, it felt like 5 years packed into one, so I'm excited to start fresh in 2021. I'm taking my New Year's resolutions to the next level: cook more, read more, and get back to things I truly love like arts & crafts and morning runs (okay, most likely walks).

Honestly, I could go on forever about the new year, new me thing but actually getting started is my biggest hurdle. I realized that my motivation comes from my mood which directly relates to my environment … and for the past year, my house has been my habitat. So, it's not looking too great after all the wear and tear. The dirt and the mess have accumulated right under my nose.

It's not that I'm bad at it, I just feel so overwhelmed. When my house is clean, I feel much more in control and motivated, and right now it's far from it. When I was venting about my cleaning woes the other day, my friend recommended Handy.

Handy allows you to book local professional cleaners and sign up for monthly, bi-weekly, or weekly plans. Plus, you can schedule appointments at a time that works for you with availability 7 days a week from 7am-11pm. So to get me in the right headspace to tackle my goals, I'm going to be signing up for Handy. I'm looking forward to letting the experts take over.

Although having people in your home may sound a bit strange right now, Handy has rolled out the Handy Safety Standard to help promote the health and safety of the customers and professionals who use their platform. Some of these measures include requiring Pros to wear face coverings during bookings and mandatory daily in-app check-ups to verify they are in good health before claiming a booking. They even have a section on their site dedicated to keeping customers and professionals updated on the latest CDC health and safety guidance.

To top everything off, all of the Cleaning Pros booked through Handy are vetted and background checked. And you can even check out each Pro's ratings and reviews before you book.

Once my house is in order, the fresh feeling will have a domino effect on so many other areas of my life:

✔ Read More

Lying on my cozy couch without inhaling all the dust I'd chosen to ignore, despite my clear uptick in sneezing the last few months. My reading list is chock-full of thrillers and fantasy. And with my new clean slate, I've even added some books about organization.

✔ Get Cooking

Nothing makes cooking more enjoyable than a sparkling kitchen. I'm inspired by a clean space and all the new recipes I'll be whipping up in 2021 already have me drooling.

✔ More Exercise (aka walking!)

I won't feel guilty getting out for a walk on-the-daily when I know I'm not neglecting any household chores thanks to Handy. And when I come home I'm not greeted by any reminders to clean.

You can specify exactly what you want to be cleaned before your Pro arrives and if you like them, you can request to have the same Pro come every time. I can already imagine how exciting it will be to walk into my spotless space.

I cannot wait to book my cleaning through Handy so I can get my 2021 resolutions rolling. My New Year is all about my wellness and my environment plays such a big part in it. I'm signing up for bi-weekly appointments. But their plans are super flexible and if I need, I can always change to a weekly or monthly cleaning plan — sometimes they even have bookings available as soon as the next day!

With Handy, I'm leaving that rough 2020 in the dust and jumping into 2021 feeling fresh and ready-to-go.

Update: Handy is offering a limited time discount for our readers! Follow this link today to get a special offer on your first time cleaning plan.

Given the nature of the pandemic, it can be tough to find the best ways to spend the usual festivities that New Year's Eve brings.

Luckily, if you're comfortable enough to step outside for the occasion, there are great places still open and worth visiting. Although you should always keep COVID-19 safety precautions in mind, here are three of the most stunning places to spend Near Year's Eve in the U.S.

New York City (New York)

No guide to stunning places to spend New Year's Eve in the U.S. would be complete without the presence of New York City, New York. The Times Square ball drop is a must-see annual event, though this year it will be a bit different due to the pandemic. Thankfully, the city will still be throwing an event for all to enjoy that will keep social distancing in mind and focus on bringing people together virtually.

While there might be live events for some to enjoy, none have been officially announced just yet. Even if you're enjoying the festivities virtually, there are few better places to spend this special occasion than at the tip of the NYC skyline.

Lake Travis (Texas)

Lake Travis is a brilliant body of water in Texas that provides a versatile collection of ways to enjoy its beauty. If you'd prefer to keep your party secluded due to the pandemic, you can enjoy the evening on a boat in the waters of this lake, which is home to the famous "Devil's Cove" party destination.

If you're comfortable spending the evening in a venue that practices COVID-19 safety precautions, consider relaxing on one of the three decks on display at The Oasis. Even if you don't stick around to ring in the New Year, viewing the sunset from The Oasis is an incredible experience in itself.

Cape Cod (Massachusetts)

If you're looking for a quainter way to ring in the new year, consider visiting Cape Cod, Massachusetts.

This lovely location has a focus on good dining, stylish and comfortable living, and COVID-19 safety, all of which they put on display via their website.

If you'd prefer not to spend too much time in a restaurant or bar, you can indulge in the incredible appearance of areas like Martha's Vineyard or Nantucket. Simply wandering around the area and taking in the scenery before enjoying an intimate evening inside makes for an unforgettable adventure.
