Hudson Yards has a lot of places to pretend you’re interested in buying really expensive watches, but it doesn’t have many spots that work for a casual drink. One good option is Milos Wine Bar, which has bar seats as well as standing tables. Ask the friendly somm to recommend something from the Greek wine list, and hang out while imagining backstories for the groups of very fancily dressed people walking up the marble staircase to Estiatorio Milos. They serve a bunch of Greek small plates here, like spanakopita and grilled octopus, but they kind of taste like they’ve been sitting out for a few hours, so just stick to the wine.

Ardesia is first and foremost a wine bar, and a good one at that. The food is decent, but it’s secondary to what they do best, which is selecting excellent “mineral-driven” wines from all over the world.
