New Years Eve at June

back towards front

Manhattan chic in Cobble Hill, Brooklyn. That is June

Who knew? I certainly didn’t. I am one of those New Yorkers who does not like to leave their parameter. However, Upper Eastside and Upper Westside New Yorkers have no excuse to not visit this richly decorated Parisian all-natural wine bar! It is no inconvenience since June is a pleasant walk from the Borough Hall stop off the 2,3,4,5, and 6 trains. That is right, New Yorkers,  Express trains!

Though, no distance will ever keep me from a great glass of natural wine, or a great meal, for that matter. June has captivated, and lured me as if was it was utopia. It is simply gorgeous. The 12 stooled bar aluminates and twinkles of wine carafes,  glasses, and cutlery waiting to be used. The sight of friends gathering for glad tidings is a testimony that June has succeeded as The neighborhood spot.

June opened in January, 2015.  “We chose the neighborhood of Cobble Hill because it is a more sophisticated demographic that would appreciate a natural wine bar.” said Tom Kearney, Chef and partner. June offers an all-natural wine list that is carefully curated by the adept Nick Gorevic. Gorevic has created a wine list that will please all wine enthusiasts. Try the Colli Trevigaini Frizzante Costadila. Two words; Orange. Bubbles. The funky, yet drinkable wines have definitely become June’s niche, and the staff will guide you through with delight, and pure charm. Chef Kearney’s menu of shared plates is absolutely scrumptious, and will get anyone wanting to eat their vegetables. Kearney changes his menu often, due to seasonal sustainability.

This is one major reason why I have returned again, and again. There is always something local, delicious and in season on the menu!

If you are wanting to escape the Manhattan madness, but still want to celebrate 2015, join June in soireé style! The bar will be serving Champagne flights, special cocktails, and an absinthe fountain will be flowing through out the evening. After 11pm, enjoy unlimited bubbles until 3am! Doesn’t that sound fabulous?
