Mignon | Downtown | Cheese Shop, Wine Bar | Restaurant
Loading...
This East Sixth Street storefront is mignon indeed. Simple, charming and a little twee, Mignon feels almost liturgical in its layout and ambience, an oval 360-degree, candlelit bar facing a small knot of attending bartenders busily polishing glasses, pouring wine and assembling boards of cheese. Mignon offers a tiny selection of salads, pâtés, cheeses and stewy things, and its wine list is comparably tiny but well selected and extremely well priced. Best of all, it's usually quiet and dark, an oasis of calm against downtown's mayhem: Sip a sherry, an Oloroso Seco from Alfonso, and watch the world go by or, at the very least, spill in and out of Cole's next door.
