Nightlife impresarios Eric and Ian Hilton operate a soul food joint, a spirited pub, two French cafes and a taco bar, so it stands to reason their empire would include a moody wine bar, too. Dimly lit with candles, this spot exudes late-night atmosphere. Dickson offers a daily happy hour (5–7pm) during which two reds and two whites are $5 a glass. Organic wines are served by the glass and paired with small plates that lean to the East. If the banh mi is available, order it and savor every porky morsel.
