The team behind Le Crocodile recently opened this flashy French wine bar six floors above their Williamsburg restaurant on the bottom floor of the Wythe Hotel. Bar Blondeau is full of green velvet banquettes and wooden two-tops where you can snack on mussel toast, order several rounds of oysters, and take in some great views of the Manhattan skyline with friends. You can also choose a bottle from their natural wine list full of up-and-coming wine regions around the world to enjoy on their large outdoor terrace.
