New York’s closest approximation of a Parisian natural wine bar, The Ten Bells has been a magnet for the city’s downtown wine crowd for years. Named for the London pub where Jack the Ripper was said to pick up his victims, the bar, which opened in 2008, remains one of the best places to grab a bottle of wine from the Loire, some oysters or even make a meal out of the menu of simple, French- and Spanish-inspired small plates.

What to drink
Avoid the by-the-glass list and go straight for the bottle list, where you'll get more bang for your buck. There's a ton of fantastic wines from the Loire, many of which are still under the radar.
