Ardesia Wine Bar

510 West 52nd Street

Wine, beer, cocktails and small plates mix ably at Ardesia Wine Bar, between 10th and 11th Avenues. During the summer months the backyard patio makes a big impression on visitors, who seem to be streaming to Hell's Kitchen as the far West Side becomes a key hot spot in our city. The wine list here has more than 10 options by the glass and more than 100 by the bottle. The special summer menu will be heavy on the rosé.

Hungry for diversity

Taste of Jewish Culture Street Festival

Free

June 17, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Sixth Avenue, between 48th and 49th streets

circle.org/event/taste-jewish-culture-street-festival

Ben's Kosher Deli, a premiere New York dining experience, is the headliner at this annual event. The theme this year is from the Workmen's Circle, which presents the event: “Diversity is Delicious.” Expect proof at this mashup, which includes non-Jewish establishments putting their best Jewish spin on traditional dishes. Since it's Father's Day, the plan is for dads to get a free egg cream. Family-friendly activities, dancing and musical performances round out the day.

Old market, new festival

Fairway Food Festival

$5

The Armory, 216 Fort Washington Ave.

The Upper West Side mainstay made news by going to the East Side — and beyond the city. Now the market's hosting a big event uptown. Signature sandwiches, pastries, cheeses, chips and snacks are all on the menu, as Fairway joins the parade of food festivals for the first time.
