A profusion of wine bars and tasting rooms have popped up in recent years—but the focus seems to have shifted more toward food. Not at Veritas, a wine bar with ample single varietals and blends from diverse regions—with an emphasis on Europe and the American West—and a truly educated staff to help weed through them. Before its 2007 opening, then-owner Adam Manson spent 3½ months curating Veritas’s list to showcase some truly great wines from around the world, now maintained by general manager and sommelier Jamie Smith. Insider tip: Tell the server the name of a wine you love, then challenge him to come up with a similar flavor profile from a different grape. If you don’t like it, he’ll replace it. Open daily.
