The Tasting Room Wine Bar & Cafe
Welcome.  Thank you for visiting us at THE TASTING ROOM website which is currently under construction. 

Our restaurant and wine bar has been open for nearly five years in NYC's East Village.  We welcome you to find out more about our menu, wine list and family on this website.  We have been rated in the top 50 restaurants in NYC by the Zagat Guide this year, for the second time since 2003, and we thank our guests for their support.  Please see our contact information for reservations, and enjoy our links to our friends' and supporters' sites.  Come visit us soon! 

The Tasting Room is a tiny restaurant on First Street in the East Village of New York City.  We seat 25 guests, serve dinner only, and present a nightly-changing, seasonal American menu highlighting fresh offerings from the farmer's market. 
We have a huge wine list of small, all-American producers.  A dozen different wines are available by the glass every evening. 
Everything on the menu comes in two sizes so that you can design your own tasting menu or order for the table to share.

We take reservations up to one month in advance, and are happy to consider your requests for private events at The Tasting Room.  Our dining room accomodates reservations of 1 - 5 people.  We cannot take parties of 6 or more unless they are booked as private parties.  We look forward to welcoming you.  Please call us.
