While there are certainly no hard and fast rules about any type of wine, or wines, that wine connoisseurs should consume during any given season, there is often a natural palate shift. This odd taste bud migration might come with our collective gravitation toward cooking indoors and even baking when late September rolls around versus …

We associate the holiday seasons with good times, meeting friends and relatives, getting and giving gifts and for some, celebrating another successful year in business. However, the holiday season also brings stress along with all that good as we strive to make others happy and bring friends, neighbors and co-workers closer together. Holiday parties don’t …

Acidity in Wine #Tasting | Ayza Midtown http://bit.ly/1LMWgLR #nyc #winebar
For some people, the acidity is the most sought after quality in a good glass of wine. It enhances the fresh, crispness that people love about wine, cuts through the fattiness of a rich meal and allows wine to be successfully paired with many foods. Because of this, many winemakers seek to create more acid …

We stopped for a glass of wine and chocolates. Chose the x4 wine tasting and x6 chocs. What a lovely combination. The venue is very small. The service was a little slow and one of the waitresses was a little rude/grumpy. I would still recommend this for a quick stop.

GREAT vegetarian menu! Did the $80 pp, 4 course meal at Ayza for my sister's bachelorette party and it was AMAZING to say the least. There was more than enough food, they kept the beer and wining flowing and service was excellent. Best part was the crepe cake at the end. :)

Great experience! I went on a Sunday evening. It wasn't crowded at all; maybe it gets crowded during the weekdays? I went for the Sunday Romance dinner. We were seated with rose petals on the table and the server lit a candle upon our arrival. Because it was during the day time and we were seated outside I didn't have that dark, dim, romantic feel. But it was still very pleasant. The food is great! My boyfriend and I both tried the panini's. The pulled pork was good and it comes with a yummy salad. You must get a chocolate martini if you come here! I tried the Raspberry Chocolate martini! So rich and creamy! They pair the martini with Jacque Torres chocolates which are tasty. The service was great when we went! We had a great experience. Try it. Can't go wrong.

Just popped in here on a Monday night for a glass of vino and some Jacques Torres chocolate and was serenaded with a lovely live jazz singer. Sidewalk tables make for great diverse people watching on this unassuming block. I was amazed at how many attractive women were there. Who knew women liked wine and chocolate?

Excellent wine and accompaniments. The live singer was a plus with a spanish-style guitar musician. I sat at the bar, having a Chalone Chardonnay, a Barbera, and then a great chocolate-infused wine with a dessert of a truffle that had Indian spice in it. I didn't have an entree; the select cheese and cured ham appetizer came on a heavy, irregularly shaped thick wood slab and the excellent hot artichoke and cheddar dip were enough for a meal. The steamy dip was top of the line, almost like a crab dip, that stayed hot the entire time. The baguette bread slices (of several types) were lightly toasted with the cheese plate and the pita slices were freshly warmed, sliced into narrow triangles that worked very well with the dip. Two bites of dark chocolate (gratis) were special, one lightly salted and the other with small bits of espresso beans.
