We visited the newly opened Local VIne (2nd ave in Belltown) this past weekend. It's the old Poliform furniture store. Wine list is extensive and almost every one of the wines is available by the glass. They've also categorized many of the wines as "local wineries," "cult wines," "critics choice etc.
Ambience is cool and chic. Not quite comfortable, but very urban.
Food small plate style and is by Crush's Jason Wilson and everything we tried (6 dishes in all) was very well made.
I believe they just opened on Friday, so it's brand new. No reservations taken, but at this early date, there weren't any required either.
This place is sure to draw a good portion of the crowd from Black Bottle (my prediction).
