The Valley’s wine bars offer long lists of vino and a laid-back atmosphere
(page 4 of 6)
Elephant Wine Bar
The scene: Frequented by professional, foodie types in their mid-30s. “Kind of the East Village stuck into Kingston,” chef Rich Reeve explains. Tuesdays are the most popular weeknight.
The list: An ever-changing menu of about 20 wines. Mostly Spanish, with a handful of French and Italian selections. $5-$10 a glass; $22-$36 a bottle.
The favorite: The Loios from Portugal, a medium-bodied red with a touch of oak.
Don’t miss: Elephant’s “underground” wines — the bar features selections from underappreciated, lesser known winemaking regions such as the Yecla subregion of Spain.
