Le Petite Crevette owner Neil Ganic gained Internet notoriety in 2009 for slinging a live lobster at a complaining customer. Two years later, he has opened this 35-seat wine bar next door, cheekily named after the much-blogged-about incident. The theme continues onto the menu, which features a lobster roll, alongside less controversial sides, like shrimp cocktail and charcuterie plates. The vino list plays it straight with mostly French and Spanish selections.
