In the city where the word “New York” was coined, everything has a price.
There are supermarkets and wine bars and restaurants and a whole slew of other businesses that have been selling booze since the city was founded in 1752.
There’s even a grocery store that has been operating for more than 150 years.
And while the city is still largely run by a single family, there’s a whole new world of commerce emerging in Manhattan’s Central Park.
It’s the “Little Shop of the City,” a haven of convenience and cheap, tasty food.
This weekend, as New York prepares for a presidential election, we’ve rounded up some of the best and worst places to find your next bottle of wine, or your next cocktail.
The Wine Cellar (The Cellar)At the Wine Cellars in Harlem’s South Bronx, there are some of Manhattan’s best and brightest wine lovers, like Brooklyn-based artist-turned-producer Yara Erez, who has opened the Cellar in her basement for more years than I can remember.
There’s also The Wine Cellier, a wine bar and restaurant that offers a full-service wine bar that can seat 200 people.
The Cellar offers an array of wines from New Zealand to France, and its menu is loaded with the kind of drinks that you’d expect to find in a traditional French restaurant.
The Wine Room, on the other hand, offers a wide selection of wine from around the world, from wines from Italy to Spain to Belgium.
Vinegar Bar & Grille (The Vinegar Bar)At The Vinegar bar, you’ll find the freshest wine in town, which is the same idea as its predecessor, the Vines Bar.
The vineyard at the bar is also the source of the wines that make up the rest of the cocktails at The Vineyard.
Cafe and Café Largo (Cafe & Café Lark)This former hotel is known for its amazing cocktails, which are usually a combination of vodka and gin, and you’ll get the chance to try all kinds of cocktails here, from a martini made with vodka to a shot of tequila.
Bar Bar Bijou (Bar Bar Bar)The Bar Bar Bajou in Harlem is one of the few places in the city that has a bar on the roof that serves an extensive menu of Spanish-style food.
You can expect a full bar experience here, including the option to try a bar menu with your food, and a great selection of drinks.
Dairy Bar & Grill (The Dairy Bar)This bar and grill is where you’ll spot the best American cheeses and cured meats.
You’ll also be able to grab a bite to eat or grab a beverage at one of their outdoor dining areas, which include a wine and beer bar.
Rococo Lounge (Rocococo)The Rococo Lounge in Harlem was one of New York’s first bar-restaurant establishments, and it’s still one of its best.
It was the first bar in the country to have indoor music, and was open to everyone until 2009, when the bar was shuttered.
Today, the restaurant remains open for brunch, and the cocktails are always pretty good.
Jamaican Cuisine (Jamaica Restaurant)This restaurant and bar in Manhattan serves some of New Orleans’ best dishes, from lobster bisque to fish tacos.
It also offers a nice selection of Mexican food.
The restaurant has a menu of classic Caribbean dishes, including an all-you-can-eat shrimp and grits, which you can also get.
Sushi Shoppe (Sushi Bar)Sushi is one part of a larger Japanese culture, which encompasses all kinds.
Boulevard Lounge (Boulevards)The Boulevards in Harlem serves a fine menu of Chinese food, along with sushi and Japanese sushi.
Karaoke Bar (Karaoking Bar)A Karaoke bar has been serving up music since it opened in 1965.
In the past two decades, Karaoke has become a popular way for bars to serve up music, as well as an entertaining alternative to drinking alcohol.
New York Diner (New York)You can’t miss the New York Diners, the neighborhood diner that has long been known for their famous fried chicken.
Strip Bar (Strip)This new strip bar is known around the city for its excellent chicken sandwiches.
It has been the spot for the neighborhood’s best jazz performances.
Alesmith (Bar Alesmith)The original bar in Harlem has been a fixture at the historic New York Public Library since
