With pressed tin ceilings, antique fans, and a flat screen TV devoted to silent films and Depression era cartoons, owner Todd Flathman has transformed an erstwhile apartment into a European-style wine bar. Among the twenty people sitting at the mahogany bar and placemat-sized steel tables, you’re likely to find local boutique owners alongside collared/heeled professionals who know their Casselas from their Colombards. Seeking classy chasers after a neighborhood meal, they select from among a couple dozen glasses of mostly French vintages, Belgian beers, Portuguese port, Spanish sherry, aperitifs, digestifs and a small list of house cocktails such as the Vin D’Orange, made of blood oranges, Meyer lemon, and bay leaves. Among the successful small dishes, the charcuterie plate brings exotic staples like moulard duck proscuitto, mole salumi, and pheasant terrine to novel harmony, while the foie gras mousse is paired with white peaches and frissee.
Picnics with a view, roller-skating nostalgia, and a party for gay headbangers.
