Amuse Wine Bar is quaint, cozy, and welcoming, with simple wooden tables, small votive candles, and even a couch and a coffee table. Here, friendly and chatty bartenders will happily help explain the approachable wine list or guide you through the concise menu of American-inspired small plates. Crispy, mildly spicy popcorn chicken is flavorful and packs a cinnamon-y punch, and similarly fried string beans and shiitake mushrooms are just as tasty and satisfyingly crunchy. On the lighter side, the calamari salad, seasoned with chili pepper, garlic, and cilantro, is refreshing and bright. As an added bonus, on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights Amuse also features live in-house music (with no cover charge) starting at eight.
