Stop what you’re doing and jet over to this gem before it (d)evolves into a trendy, overcrowded and overpriced New York travesty. From outside, this quaint wine bar on a gritty block doesn't appear to offer much, but once inside, you’ll be greeted by a staff that knows their French wines as well as their own children. On average, each glass will set you back around $5, leaving enough change to order yourself a variety of vino. The homey atmosphere is chic, yet comfortable and features a cafe and a quirky medieval-themed lounge room. The leather couches, bookshelves, and glowing candles and chandeliers set against the exposed brick walls make for a great place to spend an affordable evening.
