    As always, an excellent writeup. I wish I lived near here. This sounds like my kind of place. Love how the menu is organized.

    I will go just for the Thai bangers and mash…. and a pint or two.

    Interesting philosophy behind it. A similar thing is happening in London, the very trendy East Room which is a private members club/bar serves wine only designated by variety and country. It does make ordering simple for the consumer – you just trust that the sommelier has picked some good wines. Some people argue though that this disadvantages smaller wine producers as they cannot get their names and brands out there at bars.

    great looking bar, really nice design work. Ballsy opening a new restaurant/bar in these times – Best of luck to Jason!

    Sounds like he has the perfect formula – limited quality menu of both food and drinks, nothing too foo foo (did I spell that right?), but interesting enough to make you go back.

    We were just in. Cheese plate, olives and an edamame like none other I’ve ever had — special black bean sauce tossed in offering a really fresh savory flavor. Very warm environment. We arrived just after opening, so Jason had a moment to welcome us. We’ll be back . . . repeatedly.
