Kit’s Underground: Lovely Wine Shop at Columbus Circle Underground Food Court


I was excited to stop by a new wine shop – new to me, as it has been open for almost four months – at Columbus Circle’s new underground food court. I knew of the existence of the shop because I know the owner, Kit Pepper. The shop is lovely, light and airy with a funky and interesting selection.


I am really looking forward to trying the Chiaretto I bought from Kit whose palate I respect. She’s another person I met through the International Wine Center during my travels in the WSET world.


The shop has a $15 dollar table and more than half of the wines retail for under $20. Her selection is quite complete with sake and spirits as well. She noted there was a large Japanese community in the vicinity and the sake was a big draw for many.


I remember running into Kit months ago when she said she was opening a shop. It’s exciting to see someone succeed with their plans. Kudos Kit and love the new digs.
