Home wine drinkers, listen up: bombaybeauty has found the wine store of your dreams. The brand-new Central Bottle has a smallish selection that's "thoughtfully original and priced right," with interesting bottles at affordable price points.
The shop also has a well-chosen selection of cheeses from around the world and "a young, enthusiastic cheesemonger happy to advise you," says bombaybeauty. Every Tuesday there is a $25 tasting, with three wines paired with three small amuse-bouches prepared by a guest chef.
"I'm no wine snob," says bombaybeauty. "Here I found myself paying less for better wine—now that's a move in the right direction."
