From the craft cocktails to the choice of stemware to the table spacing, this gorgeous, Michelin-starred restaurant—which was built from a late-19th-century printing shop—hits all the right notes. While it has all of the trappings of an upscale restaurant, it’s actually remarkably affordable. This extends to the wine list, which effortlessly creates a modern canon of both classics—including an impressive list of champagnes—and regions and styles of wine once considered part of the fringe. For those seeking guidance from the list itself, there are thoughtful notes from the wine director, Arthur Hon, tucked in throughout.
