2006 Best Wine List, Affordable

Les Zygomates

The pleasures of wine-drinking diminish considerably when everything a restaurant pours (a) puts you in debt or (b) comes from a vintner or varietal you’ve never heard of. Cheers, then, to Les Zygomates for its accessible list aimed at connoisseurs on a shoestring. Arranged by color and grape, the menu boasts dozens of wines under $50. There’s even a quick-hit guide to bottles that can be had for an Andy Jackson or less, a handy resource for diners who are really pinching pennies.
