It's a two-story climb up some steep stairs to the city's best wine bar. Arrive too early in the evening and this might be your worst nightmare: a dimly lit lounge with hard-drinking business executives. Wait until dinner hour—after 8, at the earliest—and the crowd changes to the local wine-geek set wolfing down some of the best lounge food in town, including great sushi (don't miss the crispy prawn rolls), eclectic appetizers and main courses, and a selection of wines
by the glass that can't be beat. The place is not too bad on the wallet, particularly in this neighborhood. Wednesday nights there's live jazz early.
