Housed in a former art gallery, this wine bar exudes coolness. Unlabeled wine bottles of various sizes lie horizontally along the walls of all three stories. Flatbreads and bánh mì are among bestsellers on the menu, though when ribs are the blackboard special, get them. Jarad Slipp of CityZen is the consultant on the all-organic-and-biodynamic wine list.
