The original Aria Wine Bar is in the West Village, and this Hell’s Kitchen location is essentially a clone. The ceilings are a little higher, and the space is less cramped - but they serve the same menu, and, just like the other location, there are little wooden tables and exposed brick walls covered in wine bottles. Also, the pastas here are only $14 - and they’re pretty solid. Just be sure to make a reservation if you’re stopping by before a show, because there tends to be a wait.

Clyde Frazier's Wine and Dine
In truth, without a basketball court and Walt Clyde Frazier's involvement, we wouldn’t be talking about the Wine and Dine. The space is massive, the layout is clunky, but the food is pretty good. If you're a hoops fan, it's a must visit.
