Formerly known as Juicy Wine Bar, this friendly West Town spot is dedicated to fabulous wines, tasty cheeses and artisanal meat, with a handful of signature cocktail offerings as well, including fruit-infused vodkas. In terms of vino, there are about 15 to 20 boutique wines by the glass or half-glass and more than a dozen craft and import beers. For noshing, there's cheeses, chartuccerie and small plates, with favorites like seasonal bruschetta flights, caprese towers, sliced cheeses and cured meats, and panini. A retail space downstairs sells bottles of vino, olives, cheeses and other items. The upstairs lounge boasts cozy semicircular booths, and if the weather's nice, a tranquil second-floor patio with flowering plants and herbs.
