Get Tipsy at Wine Kitchen

Let these gents wine and dine you

In the competition for neighborhood bars, it’s easy to be swayed by the next PYT to post up. (Hello, first-impression rose.)

Still, in the end, we all fall for the nice guy next door.

Meet Wine Kitchen, a no-frills watering hole opening this week.

Owners/managers and former line cooks Gregory Faucette and Jason Limburg are two buds making it all about you. Think of their new bar/eatery as the anti-wine bar: casually sourced decor with a best-friend’s-living-room vibe, a nonintimidating selection of international varietals they love, and a developing small plates menu of upgraded bar food (fried gnocchi with horseradish and chives; pulled pork belly sliders topped with chicken skin, cucumber, and Fresno chili pepper).

The comfy setup encourages getting-to-know-you-better conversations, and the bartender may even remember your name.

Things are really blossoming.
