Last night I ran into the very cordial owners of Half, the wine bar on Vanderbilt between Prospect Place and Park Place expected to open up in a few weeks.
They said that they expect to focus on half bottles, and have about 10 wines by the glass. Thankfully, they also said that they expect to keep the mark-up reasonable.
I asked about beers and they said that they expect to start out with 5 taps, but may expand from there. I didn't ask about bottles yet. I don't think that they have settled on what they are putting on tap, so I pointed them to a couple of my favorites and them seemed genuinely interested in my suggestions.
For those that have beer suggestions, post them here, as I also told them about Chowhound. DeeDee??
