This 1854 restored carriage house is now the stable to a romantic, three-story jewel box of a wine bar. The marble tabletops, gilt mirrors, sconces, and crystal chandeliers fit the old-world focus of the wine list: Think “indigenous varietals” such as Nebbiolo from Italy; Riesling from Germany; and champagne from, well, you know where. The main floor is a crush of 20- and 30-somethings nursing more craft beers like Oyster Stout and Ommegang than wine. Upstairs, the gray-hair-and-bowtie set order the best of the grape stuff and socialize over Italian-influenced, generously-sized “small plates” like flatbread, cheeses, crudo, andentrées like lasagna, seared scallops, and pasture-raised lamb loin. Large groups should find relief at a “chef’s table” on the lower level, where there’s a perfect view of the wine cellar and the dishes streaming out of the large, open kitchen.
