Lallisse is one of the select wine bars in NYC, a haven for real wines, naturally made without cosmetics or chemistry, sprung from the vineyards and ancient cultures of the Mediterranean. It's a place to enjoy simple, soulful and sustainable Mediterranean food and talk for hours over organic, biodynamic and sustainable wines. Lallisse offers 100 types of wines - approximately 40 by the glass options. Lallisse's unique selection features wines from France, Italy, Spain and the Fertile Crescent - Eastern and Western Anatolia (Turkey), Greece, Israel and Lebanon. After spending extensive hours of wine tasting and going through hundreds and hundreds of bottles we created a list consisting of artisan wines produced by old and historic estates of the Mediterranean run by small organic producers. It's simply the stuff the locals drink! In the spirit of friendship and love for the life, food and wines of the Mediterranean, we happily invite you to do the same.
"The salads were good, a little unexciting, but the tuna tartare and the hummus and other spreads for the pita were fantastic. We got a bunch of things to share and were very happy with the meal. Also a nice wine selection, it got a bit expensive by the glass though so I will definitely get a bottle next time. The only thing was that there was only one person doing the bar and working as a waiter, plus one person bussing tables, which wasn't enough even on a weeknight. Also when I got there I realized I had been there for brunch before, the place across the street was super busy so we went there instead and my recollection is that it was good and not too expensive."
