If all you’ve ever done at Fox & Obel is seek out espelette pepper and single-origin chocolate, you’ll be surprised to wander into this new wine bar, where well-heeled older couples linger over wine flights and charcuterie plates. Though there’s a full menu available, a generous pour of wine is all you need to enjoy the view of the lake inlet.
