Black Mountain Wine House
415 Union St., Gowanus
This is the upstate cottage of your dreams, including shelves heaving with bottles of wine. The wood-burning fireplace in the back corner is a properly roaring affair to go with rustic fare of small plates like pork meatballs and truffle mac ‘n’ cheese. (There’s also fondue on Tuesdays!) Even though this is a wine bar, they’re not so precious about it that you can’t get a warm mug of mulled wine this time of year.
