Sixth Street Bistro (& Wine By The Glass)

Carolyn Tillie | Oct 10, 2001 07:21 PM

I had an opportunity to lunch at Sixth Street Bistro in San Pedro this afternoon (354 West 6th St., San Pedro - 310-521-8818) and was surprised by a number of changes.

First off, they changed their menu and have added a whole page of Tapas (22 of them, to be exact). I didn't get an opportunity to TRY any unfortunately, but I will definitely be going back for them. They range from $4.00 to $8.00 and are definitely not your traditional tapas. A brief listing:

Grilled Grape Leaves
Chicken Wontons
Spanish Sausage
Roman Style Olives
Pan-Fried Mozzarella
Mediterranean Calzone
Tequila Seafood Roll
Panko Shrimp
Chicken Mole

The other change (which pleased me to no end!) was their wine list. They used to have a pretty decent wine-by-the-glass list as I was happy to get Rabbit Ridge there. Now, their wine list includes 10 to 15 reds and 10 to 15 whites in total, but -- and here is the caveat -- almost the entire list can be ordered by the glass! I had a lovely '98 Eberle Cabernet which runs $36 a bottle on their list. What they wouldn't open for me was a $60 Stag's Leap. But that's okay. I was pretty pleased with the idea that I could order almost everything else...
