Amazing things come to New York City in October, and you can be in the heart of it all when you stay at The Marmara Park Avenue. One of our favorite October events is the NYC Wine and Food Festival. After missing last year due to the pandemic, The Food Network and Cooking Channel are thrilled to be presenting the festival, along with Capital One, once again.
We are sure they plan to pack two years’ worth of tastings, culinary demonstrations, parties, and family fun into this event, which takes place October 14-17.
However, you don’t have to be here for the festival to enjoy pairings of fine wine and food in NYC. Peruse our list of favorite NYC wine bars to find one that suits your fall visit.
1. St. Tropez in the West Village and Soho
St. Tropez brings a taste of the French Riviera to NYC. If you enjoy French wine, you’ll love either one of their cozy locations. Pair a brunch or dinner option with a Calmel Joseph 2016 or the high-end Chateau Lafitte Carcasset St Estephe 2014.
2. Gomi Korean Wine Bar in the East Village
This hole-in-the-wall specializes in Korean and Brazilian dishes that pair beautifully with their large selection of Portuguese wines. Try the Monte Velho or the Pó de Poeira with a cheese board, or opt for something more traditional like Kimchi Dumplings.
Ruffian is the wine bar to Kindred’s restaurant, but you’re sure to find excellent wine and food in both buildings. They are located about a block away from each other, and together they host the Witchy Wine Festival, which takes place on Halloween night. This festival offers three seatings and celebrates female winemakers..

4. Bread n Wine on the Upper East Side
Unlike many wine bars on our list, you can enjoy all Bread n Wine has to offer morning, noon, and night. They are open from 6:00 am until 12:00 am, and they serve breakfast all day. Choose from all kinds of American fare, like slow-roast leg of lamb and a Philly cheesesteak, while enjoying a glass of cabernet sauvignon or rosé.
5. Sofia Wine Bar in Midtown
Sofia Wine Bar in Midtown boasts Italian food and wines from across the globe (though the majority are Italian). Their knowledgeable staff is happy to recommend the best wine to pair with their made-from-scratch small plates.
The Marmara Park Avenue provides luxurious accommodations in one of the most desirable parts of Manhattan. Our goal is to provide the best service, amenities, and overall stay in this great city.
