Bar Piquette is a wine bar with a chalkboard menu of regularly-changing wines and small plates.

Giving bistro vibes, this project from Grant van Gameren and sommeliers Nathan Morrell and Ellen Shrybman is an intimate locale to sip on a huge range of wines from around the world.

Piquette offers a rotating selection of 80 to 100 labels of wine at a time, curated by Morrell and Shrybman, both formerl​​​​​​y of Bar Isabel and other van Gameren-owned spots in the city.
