The French mainstay has enticed cork dorks for almost 15 years with a wine list far longer than the food menu. Beautiful and hard-to-find wines from Argentina, Hungary, Spain and France are poured in two-ounce increments, so you can sample your way through the Rieslings or Cab Sauvs without hitting the floor afterward. The higher-priced bottles, meanwhile, are one of the greatest bargains in town, as co-owner Chris Campbell lowers his markup for pricier vintages. If you stay for dinner, take additional pleasure in the wine recommendations that accompany each dish.
