Wildair lands in the LES as the kid sister to the excellent tasting-menu-only Contra a few doors down on Orchard St. Unlike Contra, food here is à la carte, all paired nicely with wine director Jorge Riera’s well-edited wine list. Like Contra, Wildair focuses on natural wine, showing a particular affinity for the Loire Valley.

What to drink
All of the wine. Also: don't miss the entire section dedicated to "pét-nat" (gently sparkling wines made in the ancestral method), which are happiness, bottled.

While the move is to consult Jorge and order by the bottle here, don't miss his Vergano Spritz, a mix of Les Capriades Pét'Sec and Mauro Vergano Americano.
