Howdy, SF Chowhound here - headed to the Big Apple on business later this week.
For a change, I'm spending a few extra days, and am anxious to get out of boring Midtown. I've already got dinner reservations at Jules Bistro and Crispo (dining with family coming down from CT) after reading recommendations on the board.
But for a pre or post-dinner drink with friends, I'd like some recs for an unpretentious, moderately priced wine bar in Chelsea or the West Village. Ideally a place that you could wear a nice pair of jeans ... Please help.
