With chalkboard menus, low-backed booths, and violet wallpaper, this European-cafe-style bar and lounge is utterly charming. A roster of more than 75 wines by the glass ($7 to $16) accompanies a small-plates menu of comfort foods, such as a corn dog ($2.75) and hush puppies with maple butter ($4). Despite the recent departure of cocktail whiz Gina Chersevani, the five cocktails ($10 each) are still creative and quirky. Sunday nights, stop in to watch a classic movie and munch on complimentary candy and truffle-butter popcorn.
