Like the name implies, this wine-and-cheese bar offers many of its items by the ounce, so patrons can try a bit of everything without breaking the bank. (That said, the majority of the wines are only available by the bottle.) The bar’s sommelier, Andre Compeyre, likes to balance wines from established regions (e.g., Bordeaux, Napa) with a few surprises, like a delicious (and affordable) Gamay Noir from Chateau Grand Traverse in Michigan. The bar boasts 150 different wines, although Compeyre has his eye on 250. The food menu includes caviar, salmon, and different cured hams, along with classic Italian and French entrees. Curved ceilings, candlelight, and oil paintings make it feel like a true French wine cellar, as long as you can ignore the bustle of Bouley Bakery in the next room.
