isiting the out-of-the-way Bacco’s Wine and Cheese is like taking a trip to wine country. But you never have to leave the city. Spend time at the tasting table with the owner, Bob Bacco, and enjoy a complimentary flight from his handpicked collection with one of the shop’s fine cheeses or meats, Monday through Saturday. The wine enthusiast stocks his sleek, glass-walled shop with a variety of his favorite vino from around the world, and brings in wine experts a few times a week. There are also American and European cheeses, Sicilian olive oil, fresh-baked bread from Iggy’s, fine Italian and Spanish meats, olives, pate, and gifts for oenophiles.

The hotel introduced the novel innovation of radios in the guest rooms, which rented for $3.50 a night.
