More than 80 wines at this airy restaurant and bar are available by the glass. With a selection that travels from the Loire Valley to Linden, Virginia, the range appeals to wine aficionados as well as locavores. The blond-wood bistro is a haven for an after-work crowd as well as those on break from the kids, though plenty would cite it as a special-occasion place, too. Jeff Heineman’s menu showcases American cuisine and fresh ingredients—the goat-cheese-stuffed piquillo peppers and fried chicken livers with pepper jelly are favorites.
