Eben Lillie grew up in his father’s 20-year-old wine shop Chambers Street Wines, which heralded small-batch vintages, biodynamic and natural wines before they became a sensation among the artist, intelligentsia and grape geek circles. Now it’s his son’s turn to dazzle oenophiles and the Cuvee-curious alike. Fancy something cloudy, fizzy or funky? Swing by this moody, exposed brick space in the LES, pull up a stool, and ask for something “barnyardy.” Cap it off with light bites like local charcuterie or velvety sardines served with a crunchy baguette. On a clear night, take your bottle under the Orchard Street stars with a Parisian-style sidewalk table.
