Wine bars to get all warm and fuzzy.
Make like a world traveler and take your wine with special occasion dishes like roasted bone marrow and wild boar burgers.
Great place to get recommended new wines by the uber-knowledgable staff. Get a cheese plate and a pinot, be in heaven.
Simply can not be beat for lunch. Visit the on-site wine shop (curated by Garces himself, and made up mostly of good, cheap international wines) and bring it next door while you nosh on interesting soups, salads and sandwiches.
Those who need something a bit more substantial than a salad and cheese when you're downing wine (guilty!), will appreciate the plethora of gourmet sandwiches on the menu.
Friendly and un-pretencious, you can flights of three pours here for the price of a full glass — great for vino commitment-phobes.
