The owners of Thirst Wine Merchants are behind this French-inflected wine bar in Prospect Heights. The spot—which is outfitted with 30-foot recycled-cork bar and a reclaimed pine benches—focuses on "slow wines" (wines produced organically or biodynamically) with an emphasis on Gallic vintners. The short menu goes beyond the typical wine-bar fare of light bites, offering hearty dishes like rabbit stew and lamb tagine with prunes and almonds.
