Anna Maria’s Wine Bar

53 Purchase St, Rye; 914.305.6780

In the former Red Pony space sits this welcoming destination from Anna Maria Santorelli, a chef and entrepreneur who previously worked at NYC’s Gracie Mansion and a now-shuttered eponymous restaurant in Larchmont. It features floor-to-ceiling windows, bar and table seating, plus Italian-accented small plates to pair with your wine and cocktails.

Bellacosa Wine & Tapas Bar

147 Main St, Dobbs Ferry; 914.693.6259 ext. 2

“I have a real passion for wine,” owner Frank Donato told Westchester Magazine in January 2023, and this warm, brick-walled spot proves his point. It offers an approachable wine list of Prosecco, Super Tuscans, and California red blends, as well as beer and cocktails. The kitchen turns out unfussy crowd-pleasers like cheese and charcuterie boards, mussels, shishito peppers, and the pizzas that made Donato’s neighboring restaurant, Brick Oven Pizza, a Dobbs Ferry mainstay

Great for: Happy hour. All glasses of wine are 30% off Monday through Thursday, 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.

The warmly lit space has industrial pendant lamps, cherry-red banquettes, and bar seating, and the kitchen serves paellas and such classic tapas as Serrano ham croquettes, patatas bravas, and garlicky shrimp. While Spanish bottles headline the lengthy wine list, there are also offerings from Oregon, France, Italy, and California, among others, plus beer and cocktails.

Old World favorites (Champagne, Sauternes, Tempranillo) plus bottles from South Africa, Sonoma, and beyond headline the extensive wine list at this cozy spot near the Bronxville train station. Nine seats cluster around the copper bar, and the rest of the space is filled with two-tops, a booth, and a farmhouse table for groups. Happy hour here means $3 off any glass of wine, Monday through Thursday, 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Don’t miss the chalkboard special dishes like Moroccan meatballs, peach crostini, and bread pudding with bourbon sauce.

There are also cocktails and beers, plus snacks, share plates, and more substantial dishes like branzino and heritage pork chops.
