A unique gathering spot for local socialites and trendspotters, the Wine Bar pours its share of pleasures, along with small plates of “slow food.” There are only a few tables, with much of the seating contained at two different bar areas, but the mood is relaxed in order to encourage as much indulgence as a guest desires.
The Latest Dish
Each of the food items on the Wine Bar’s menu is paired with a glass of something complementary. Yukon gold fries, grilled flatbread with three dips, chilled beet soup, chicken liver pate, and grilled Portuguese sardines all have a wine that adds to the personality of whatever is on the plate. Entrecote of beef with soft polenta, Cornish hen with summer vegetables, miso-marinated black cod, and nicoise salad are among the nuanced dishes.
Delights to Devour
Dessert from the Wine Bar includes rhubarb and strawberry sorbets, lemon chiffon cake, chocolate fudge brownie with coconut ice cream, and vanilla crème brulé with biscotti. Due to a wait staff that encourages exploration of the tapas menu and the rituals involved with truly appreciating a glass of wine, the space is intimate, and constantly packed with patrons.
