At this neighborhood favorite, families and small groups can feast on a Mediterranean menu with something for everyone—from soups and sandwiches to marinated anchovies and paella. The dramatic marble bar is framed by an Enomatic wine dispenser with more than 50 taps, and the wine list is coded according to grape guru Robert Parker, Wine Spectator, and the International Wine Review. With a shop next door, it’s easy to bring home a favorite pour. Wednesday night is half price on all bottles. Expect a crowd.
