Wine-Shop Owner: Frank Giresi of Bowery & Vine
At his newly relocated shop, Giresi now has more room for affordable bottlings from prestigious regions and a tasting counter.
Favorite BYOB Restaurant: A Casa Fox
Caterer Melissa Fox runs this homey new Lower East Side Latin spot, which makes excellent empanadas with fillings like pulled pork.
Preferred Bottle To Bring: 2006 Durigutti Bonarda ($12)
This earthy Argentinean red is Giresi’s go-to match for A Casa Fox’s beef chimichurri skewers and big-flavored Nicaraguan carne chorizada.
