Head to Hell’s Kitchen for Adella Wine Bar

06ef44_61ad8cfd779443d59be78f48a4a5381eOn theIMG_20180324_131814897 Saturday of the March for Our Lives march in NYC, I had every intention of attending the rally or, at the very least, cheering from the sidelines. Instead–like Meg Ryan in “You’ve Got Mail,” who got a manicure and forgot to vote for Ruth Messinger–I landed at Adella Restaurant & Wine Bar and never left. In my defense, I was cooling my heels before a 2pm matinee of Three Tall Women and was concerned I might get caught in the throngs.  But I digress.

Starved, thirsty and NYT crossword in hand, I made my way to Adella, a small, sleek and friendly Hell’s Kitchen haunt. Adella offers a strikingly different wines by the glass list of unusual varietals and lesser-known regions, delicious house-made rugulach, and a perfectly turned spinach and goat cheese omelet.

IMG_20180324_125515292With three Rosés to choose from I asked for the driest and was poured a glass of Château de Berne Esprit Méditerranée Rosé 2016.  A blend of Cinsault, Grenache, Carignan, and Cabernet Sauvignon. Fresh, slightly fruity, the Berne had enough acidity to counter the omelet but would have been just fine as a sipping wine.

I was thrilled to discover Adella Restaurant & Wine Bar and look forward to returning for those incredible rugulach and another glass of something lovely.
