During the typically food-deprived, disc-herniating airplane journey back to New York, solace comes in knowing that postage stamp-sized ‘ino cafe and wine bar in Greenwich Village stands ready to soothe the jet-jostled.

Open until 2 a.m. every night, this rustic room provides succor in the form of a nice bottle of Lambrusco, the bubbly red that is a world away from the sweet, industrial dreck popular in the 1970s, paired with ‘ino’s succulent tomato and mozzarella panini.
