Cuisine type: French
This bustling bistro from Delphine and Jason Evanchik presents a wine bar with urban style but also a refreshing lack of pretense. The menu offers affordable French bistro fare, from escargot nibbles to more ambitious blackboard twists, but the wide-ranging wine list - with more than 60 by the glass - is the main attraction.
Escargot; baked brie; charcuterie; cheese plate; calamari; Vintage burger; lamb shank special; tuna au poivre special; prime rib special.
More than 60 wines available by the glass, with more focus on quality values (earthy St.-Joseph, lush Angeline pinot) and some international finds (South African malbec from Tumara) than anything overly high-end. Small but smart selection of Belgian beer.
Hours: Open Monday through Friday, 4 p.m.-2 a.m., Saturday, 5 p.m.-2 a.m. (Kitchen open to midnight.)
