The other week, Georgia and I dropped by to see Dorian, the Albanian proprietor at Medi Wine Bar, an intimate Mediterranean spot on 9th Avenue, between 53rd and 54th. Cozy and rustic upstairs and down, with stone washed walls, countryside tables, and hanging glass lamps, Medi offers a regional menu with small plates and entrees, and over 50 wines by the glass. Showcasing the expected alongside the up and coming (and ancient!), Medi offers wines from Italy, Spain and France, with representation from Turkey, Croatia, Montenegro, Israel and Lebanon. Having passed by Medi a number of times, I was glad to have finally entered; it’s a warm reprieve from the soulless establishments that line the bulk of 9th Avenue.
