heading to new orleans this weekend and hope to be down there more often in the coming year. i know the cocktail is a cherished art form in your city and there is no shortage of places to indulge in them. but i'm wondering if there are any wine bars that you would recommend?
furthermore, any good wine shops - with well-selected stock and owners/staff who seek out new/interesting wines for their customers? i don't want some corporate shop with nothing but veuve clicquot and santa margherita.
thanks in advance.
