“In Vino” Evolves from Wine Bar to Authentic Italian Eatery


Exterior In Vino

While there is no shortage of delicious and scenic restaurants in the East Village, few would be able to boast the atmosphere and extensive wine list of In Vino. This is because the restaurant started out as a wine bar, with hundreds of wines from 20 regions in Italy. Now, In Vino has expanded to a full-blown restaurant with rustic-yet-reimagined Italian dishes. They also offer weekly events like “Tasting Tuesdays” where guests can enjoy wines from the massive In Vino collection. They also have a $25 Sunday evening prix-fixe called “Sunday Gravy” that includes a $15 bottle of wine.

We had the pleasure of dining at In Vino, eager to sample the delicious food and something off of the wine menu. The interior was romantic as well as cozy with rustic furniture and dim light fixtures shining off the walls. The staff was friendly and completely eager to explain all of the delicious components of the menu to us. We ordered an assortment from the menu, which was all rich and delicious from the grilled marinated quail to the pumpkin ravioli and tiramisu. It definitely didn’t hurt that every course came with a new glass of delicious Italian wine. Out of the busting group of options in the East Village for a meal, In Vino is unique in its authenticity towards the region that it is inspired by. It offers variety in both food in wine that differing tastes and palettes can appreciate. We definitely plan to be back soon for an intimate night with a friend (or maybe a date) for delectable food and wine.

Grace Capobianco, CEO/Publisher of Downtown Media & Production was born to be a visionary. She has spent the majority of her life working, developing and marketing innovative media products that not only engage and inform but also bring entire communities together. Utilizing her personal vision as a professional guide, Grace started her first company, Tropical Publishing, when she was just 27 years old and from this moment on, she knew that entrepreneurship was her passion. On a perpetual quest to bring innovative and relevant news to communities, she also created, developed and published the first ever Chamber of Commerce magazine for the Palm Beaches, The South Florida Office Guide. Evolving within the realm of publishing, she moved on to launch Up The Coast magazine in the 1980’s, a guide to Jupiter, in north Florida, where the population aggrandized from 9,000 to more than 70,000 today, and then continued to hone in on niche markets with the launch of publications like Alternative Medicine and NewBeauty. Simultaneously, she launched ATSI, a telecommunications company, which sold Mitel and Siemens products to her publishing clients. The idea of Downtown Magazine NYC was born for Grace in the wake of the devastation of 9/11. A Lower Manhattan resident at this time, Grace saw firsthand the incredible sense of community the neighborhood had demonstrated during these trying times, as well as its immense strength and perseverance. She explored every angle of launching a magazine that would speak to this community but initially felt the timing was just too soon. It wasn’t until 2010 that Grace felt the community was ready to hear its voice and launched Downtown Magazine NYC.
