Chef-duo Jeremiah Stone and Fabian von Hauske of Contra opened a more casual wine-bar-meets-restaurant spot a couple doors down on Orchard Street in the summer of 2015, which has proven to be an LES standout. All of the seating is at high-top, communal tables, and walk-in only. The wine list is first-rate, but this isn’t just a spot for drinks, so come hungry and attempt to order as many of their very-shareable plates as you can.
