Nothing eases the pain of a long day’s work like happy hour. But even better than regular happy hour is a free happy hour.
Enter Terroir. The self-proclaimed “elitist wine bar for everyone” gives away a free glass of sherry during happy hour at each of its three locations—East Village, TriBeCa, and Murray Hill.
Terroir’s head honcho, Paul Grieco, thinks sherry is extremely underrated and wants more of its patrons to realize that it’s good for more than just cooking. (And it definitely is!)
The free sherry is accompanied by $6 glasses of wine, all perfectly paired with the delicious food menu, which includes beet and gorgonzola risotto balls, sage leaves with lamb sausage and some delicious fried chicken.
We ducked in last Friday and despite the gloomy, chilly weather, the sherry, copious wine and tasty small plates warmed us right up. The TriBeCa spot is our favorite since the out-of-the-way location makes for a less crowded, more pleasant environment than the raucous East Village bar.
After our last glasses of wine, we headed back out into the foggy night, taking in the view of lower Manhattan on our walk home.
