Dirty Bird’s Wine Bar

In August, I linked to a report on Eater that Dirty Bird To-Go was doubling the size of its Chelsea location (204 W. 14th St.) and Chambers Street Wines—its neighbor in Tribeca—was helping with the beer and wine program. Evidently, the collaboration is more substantial than that. It’s more of a nighttime wine bar, with its own name (Verre de Terre, or VdT) and Instagram account. “The wines are offered all throughout the day,” said Dirty Bird’s Joe Ciriello. “In the near future, we would like to offer ‘bar snacks’ and small plates to complement the wine bar.”

“I’ve been a couple of times and I loved it,” reports M., a TC reader who keeps a close eye on the New York City food scene. “I don’t think much has been made about it yet publicly, but I hear it’s like a wine industry/sommelier spot (especially for those who love natural wines). Almost all the bottles are below $40-50, and as low as $20. Unheard of in NYC for the quality and diversity of wines—grape varietals and regions. One express stop off the 2/3 and you’re pretty much there.”

I asked Dirty Bird’s Ciriello if we can hope for an outpost on Chambers Street…. “The space will be a bit more challenging, but I like the idea,” he said.
