This little wine bar on Maiden Lane is exactly the kind of place you want to stumble upon after discovering a hole in your shoe on ‘the wettest Wednesday since 1983’. Between the baked camembert, the candlelight, and all of that organic wine, there isn’t much that a visit to Lady Of The Grapes can’t fix. Want to catch up with your very best friends? Grab a bottle, dive into the charcuterie selection, and split the tarte au citron. Need somewhere charming to pop the question (no, not ‘do you want to share some brie’, the other one) and Paris is looking a little too pricey? Go for a bottle of champagne and let the candlelight do the rest. It’s cosy, it’s warm, and the wine is excellent.
