There’s No Place Like Home Restaurant: New York City

Tucked away on tiny Cornelia Street in New York City’s West Village, Home Restaurant has the feel of a cozy homey dining room, thus its name.

Last Thursday I wandered in, chatted with Larry the general manager who showed me the fast-growing New York wines that the restaurant is serving: including a vast collection from owners Barbara Shinn and David Page.
A: 20 Cornelia Street, NY NY 10014.
T: 212-243-9579.

The couple also happen to own Shinn Estates Vineyards on Long Island, and since food and wine go hand in hand, the couple decided to open a restaurant to compliment their vintages. “Home? is one of a handful of New York eateries gung-ho on showcasing the New York’s culinary pride. I tried the “seasonal greens with spring vegetables and mustard thyme vinaigrette,? and for $2 more with two poached eggs on top (a healthy choice). I’ll save the wine for the next trip out to the vineyards.

Another hotspot is Vintage New York, a chic wine and food bar on Broome Street that looks like it is for the Vanity Fair set, but is really more down-to-earth.
