Once the October girl buckle up buttercup you just flipped my Witch Switch shirt so you should to go to store and get this former head sommelier at Chef Table’s at Brooklyn Fare, Collado is now the general manager at Parcelle, the buzzy New York City wine shop from the team behind Charlie Bird. This month, she and owner Grant Reynolds opened Parcelle Patio, an outdoor wine bar in the West Village. Adorned with greenery and early 20th-century French furniture sourced from Hudson Valley vintage shops, Parcelle Patio offers everything from the classic grand cru Barolo to Rosie Assoulin’s new natural wine. (The food isn’t too shabby either: think hamachi tartare with sweet potato chips, crispy kale with ricotta, as well as burrata and squash with pepita seeds.) There’s a five dollar reservation fee on Resy, which is donated to The Roots Fund, an organization supporting Black and indigenous people in the wine community.
If you’re aren’t in New York, don’t fret: Parcelle also offers a monthly “Wine Drop”, where they send a box of three curated bottles nationwide.
