In our Wine Bar, Chef Mitchel lets his imagination take charge with an innovative tapas menu, inspired macro plates and artisanal cheeses.  His stylized dishes are widely acclaimed and his unique desserts are another of his special talents.  Choose from over fifty wines by the glass or try any of our incredibly popular wine flights.  Of course, our award-wining bottle list and full-service bar are also available.

The Wine Bar is an extraordinary space that is both classic and sophisticated.  We are open for dinner Wednesdays through Sundays.

Our Wine Bar kitchen hours are:

Wednesday & Thursday: 6-9; Friday: 6-10; Saturday: 5-10; Sunday: 4:30-8:30
