In New York’s SoHo neighborhood, Charlie Bird offers inventive Italian-American dishes from chef Ryan Hardy. There are many incredible pasta dishes, like spaghetti alla carbonara and rigatoni with suckling pig, as well as seafood, like hamachi crudo, and yummy dessert. The service and spot-on food even earned Charlie Bird a spot in the 2020 Michelin Guide. The vibe is undeniably cool: The bi-level spot is a modern, yet cozy and has caramel-colored leather seating, Carrara marble and cool photographs throughout. In the summer, dine al fresco on the patio. Even if you don’t eat, many come exclusively for the expertly curated wine list. Grant Reynolds is a partner and sommelier at Charlie Bird (he is known as the youngest person to ever pass the Advanced Sommelier exam) and is responsible for the incredible list. It’s no surprise that Charlie Bird has been named as one of the best wine restaurants in America. The restaurant’s atmosphere is cool, yet casual, and if you find yourself eating downtown, you can never go wrong with Charlie Bird.
