What to Wines to Order at Noreetuh

What to Wines to Order at Noreetuh

In some ways, Noreetuh is unassuming. It’s a small spot in the East Village serving Hawaiian-leaning dishes like Spam musubi and kimchi fried rice, while pop and hip-hop alternate on the speakers. In other ways, Noreetuh is less modest. Spam musubi can be adorned with black truffles, or the Spam can be subbed out for Japanese scallops or Hokkaido uni. But even the ossetra caviar and foie gras terrine pale in comparison to the most eye-catching aspect of Noreetuh: the wine list, which is one of the most exciting in all of NYC.

Here are the best buys at Noreetuh. Pro-tip: If you want to bring your own bottle, they have no corkage fee on Sundays– just leave a tip like you bought the wine there.

Noreetuh Wine List


Dishes here range from mackerel crudo to chicken katsu and crab fried rice, and you’re going to want to try as many things as possible. The only wine that pairs with pretty much everything? Bubbly.

White Burgundy

Compared to the real estate devoted to German riesling, the wine list’s white Burgundy section is quite concise. But every single producer carries serious weight.

Joseph Colin, En Remilly, Saint-Aubin Premier Cru 2019

Sebastien Christophe, Fourchaume, Chablis Premier Cru 2020

Red Wine

While most of the menu lends itself to white or sparkling wine, you might want something that can stand up to the porterhouse, or you might simply be in the mood for some delicious red wine.

Arnot-Roberts, Syrah North Coast 2011

Off-Dry Riesling

The best time to dabble in off-dry riesling is when your food is spicy or salty or bitter, or as is often the case here, all of the above. And the best place in NYC to drink both young and old wines with some sweetness is Noreetuh.
