While it comes from the team behind Bar Carrera and Bar Veloce (who offer Italian and Spanish wines, respectively), Custom ignores Europe altogether and presents strictly American wines and good ones at that. This place is small, relaxed, and candlelit; a perfect date destination. Romantic endeavors are helped along by a menu that would make any novice sound knowledgeable: wines are listed by region with simple tasting notes and most are available by the glass, so you can jump easily from California to New Mexico to Washington State. Even beer gets the sophisticated treatment with a short list of local craft brews helpfully arranged from light to full-bodied. The tapas-sized bar food goes way beyond charcuterie: on hand are cellar-pickled beets, Philly cheesesteaks, and the Elvis, a PB, banana and bacon fried sandwich that pretty much pairs well with anything.


Kitchen is open until 2 a.m.
