Let's face it. If you're coming to Carnevino you're coming here to eat the food from celebrity chef Mario Batali. But it's worth stopping into the bar for a cocktail or a glass of vino from winemaker Joe Bastianich.
Here there are lots of great wines by the glass including sparkling wines, whites and reds from Italy and Napa Valley. Carnevino also has a Coravin system, which uses technology that keeps the cork in the bottle. That means you can pour glasses whenever you like, and instead of oxidizing, the wine will continue to age naturally. You can select 3-ounce and 6-ounce pours.
If wine's not your thing, the bar at Carnevino also has specialty cocktails, Italian beers, single malt Scotch, grappa, tequila, Irish Whiskey...the list goes on and on.
Just because you've stopped at the bar don't think that you've missed out on Batali's great food. The bar area offers a select menu with salads, sandwiches and a burger as well as sides.
