Michael Fadem’s love of beverage came while working in high-end coffee in such New York institutions as Oslo, Café Pedlar and Variety. He transitioned into wine at Marlow & Sons, then became a general manager at Roman’s and Estela. In 2016 he and partners opened Ops, a Neapolitan-style pizza place in Bushwick, where the focus is on the kind of wine that Fadem loves to drink and support—from Georgian orange wine to natural Beaujolais. It’s working. This year, Ops was named a James Beard semifinalist for Outstanding Wine Program.
