I wish I owned a place like this.

And speaking of hip and classy places, let’s not forget Webster’s Wine Bar. The atmosphere’s great, the service is outstanding, and the food, which is there simply to complement the wine, is absolutely delicious. Try the bacon-wrapped dates, the chorizo or one of their many cheeses. Just beware of the Stilton; it’ll knock you out of your chair. Make sure you have one of their little pizzas, and while you’re at it, go ahead and try some anchovies. You don’t think you like them, but try them anyway. As for the wine, order a “flight” and sample a few. You don’t have to be a connoisseur to enjoy yourself here. The menu reads like prose; it will tell you all you need to know. After you leave, you’ll feel confident enough to hold your own in a conversation about wine. Once the buzz wears off, that is.

The owner, Tom MacDonald, is also one hell of a nice guy.

    Good wines and good food, it’ll set you back a few bucks if you stick with the nice wines, or simply can’t stop after a couple of glasses.

    Good suggestion. This is my “Summer of Flights.” Thanks for the tip!
