Tria sells itself as a casual wine bar and a grown-up beer bar at the same time—and with lots of fine cheeses to accompany either type of drink. This narrow bar feels very Euro, what with its spare handsomeness, cheese platters, savory plates and sandwiches, and beginner-friendly selection of some three dozen wines by the glass divided into fun categories like bubbly, bold, luscious, funky, zippy, and so on. You'll find about two dozen beers as well, again categorized by personality type: friendly, profound, invigorating, and extreme. In 2007, Tria opened up a second location near Washington Square West at 12th & Spruce streets (tel. 215/629-9200).
