Has Anyone Else Grown Tired of Vignola in Portland?

Vignola, the new sidecar to Portland's Wharf Street staple Cinque Terre opened in late summer 2006 as a chic and stylish tapas bar. I've been there a few times - enjoyed the atmosphere, the cocktails and - to a certain extent - the food. That being said, there isn't alot there to bring me back. The menu is far too limiting and - as a result - has quickly morphed into "The Wine Bar II". It's funny, there really isn't a single entre item there geared to the male palate, its all niblings and gnoshings - the perfect place for the girls to get together after work.

The good news is that it appears to be doing a brisk business. It is what it is - a nice tapas bar. My advice - don't go there unless you plan on going someplace else for dinner ;)
