With the recent success of the movie "Sideways," about two men gallivanting through California’s wine country, it seems everyone’s a wine lover. If you’re ready for a glass of pinot noir, schedule a visit to W Restaurant - yes, the W is for wine - on Ocean Avenue in Sheepshead Bay.

According to owner Igor Shpol, the interior is designed to resemble an Old World wine cellar. The main dining room is furnished with French antiques; and the walls are covered floor-to-ceiling with racks holding bottles from the 450 varieties of international brands in the custom wine cellar downstairs.

To accompany great wine, it’s natural to offer quality meat and seafood. Chefs Joseph Kumcoro and Yanto Gumguan grill big portions of sirloin, rib eye, T-bone and porterhouse, all aged 30 days.

Shpol, who opened the restaurant in November, says, "Our chefs offer a fusion of French, Austrian, Japanese and Middle Eastern cuisines."

That means your sirloin is rubbed with Caribbean spices, and if your rib eye needs a spark, there’s a dish of thick garlic aioli to enliven it. W’s menu also offers a trio of tartar appetizers - salmon, tuna and yellowtail (pictured) - as well as a selection of fish entrees. Desserts are made at Manhattan’s famed Payard patisserie.

W Restaurant (2812 Ocean Ave. at Avenue X) accepts Discover, MasterCard and Visa. Entrees: $19-$43. The restaurant serves lunch and dinner daily. For reservations, call (718) 769-2222.
