Just wanted to share my enthusiasm for this hidden place. I had one of the best experiences I've had this last year or so, which includes Wink, Starlite, Four Seasons, and Green Pastures. I just turned 21 two days ago and my boyfriend and I came here once before for dinner. This time, we sat at the bar for happy hour (1/2 price appetizers).

Jay, the bartender/wine sommelier, did an outstanding job. He made knowledgable recommendations, casual conversation, and did not make me feel like I was out of place for being so young. We ordered 3 appetizers- Almond crusted Brie, the Dolmas, and the crab cakes. All were excellent. We each had 2 glasses of wine. Dessert was on the house because it was my birthday, and Jay even threw in a second dessert because we were debating amongst two.

Glasses of wine ranged from 6.25 to about 12, 13 dollars a glass, although on Weds. all glasses are half off or 5 dollars.

Although this place focuses on wine, I would rate the food along side with the more modern top ten list contenders like Wink and Starlite.
