MICHELIN Guide 2017
1614 Third Ave., New York 10128
South African
From $25 to $49


This South African wine bar takes its name from the word for shelter. It is owned by a native South African who chased her dreams of stardom to New York City, while building an impressive resume of work in some in the city's finer dining rooms. The space has a comfortable appeal, spotlighting a lively dining counter as well as high and low wood tables. Discover a plethora of wines not just from South Africa, but also South America and New York. To accompany your glass, select from the interesting small plates like "spear and shield" of bacon-wrapped asparagus with cheddar-stuffed mushroom caps; or vark ribbetjies en vark pensie, a pork duo of ribs glazed with honey and rooibos tea plus belly braised in Indian pale ale dressed with candied kumquats.
