Best Wine Store 

Gomer's

Gomer's on Broadway is not a wine store for the snooty. A handwritten sign on the door reminds customers that they must wear shirts and shoes, and a shaggy dog often lounges behind the counter. But it's the store's thin veneer of grime that adds to its charm as a place to shop for wine. Friendly and unassuming staff (one of them is the store's wine buyer) wander around, offering to help shoppers choose their vino, and they're always right on. Manager Mark Baldwin will ask enough questions to know which bottle to pluck from the hundreds crammed into the store's small space. Depending on your answers, he might grab an Australian Malbec, or maybe a Burgundy or a California Pinot Noir. "We have a lot of things that are not going to be found at grocery stores," Baldwin says. As lazy wine shoppers, we love that they do our research for us.
