Fodor's Review

If the stunning 4,000-wine-bottle installation on the ceiling of the dining room isn't a dead giveaway, this Old Town newcomer belongs to master sommelier and former Check, Please! host Alpana Singh. Wine is obviously a big deal here; a 30-page catalog presents varietals from around the globe. Start in the first-floor wine bar, snacking on artisanal pizzas, charcuterie boards, and oysters on the half shell, before heading to the second-floor dining room to feast on a sumptuous menu of hen eggs and polenta fries, lamb chops with red wine–braised cipollini onions, and seared sturgeon with lentils and bacon.
