This family-run wine bar/"European market," a casually industrial, loftlike space with a dining and drinking area up front, and a limited selection of boutique wines and charcuterie items in back, is rough-edged. And that's a big part of its charm. The eat-in fare's just sandwiches, salads, small plates, and large charcuterie platters for sharing. But chef Alfredo Patino is the former chef de cuisine at Bizcaya (the Ritz-Carlton Coconut Grove's ultra-upscale restaurant) and the sophistication shows in elegant tapas like warm figs brûlée (fresh figs stuffed with Cambozola cheese and hazelnuts, drizzled with sweet-tart aged balsamic vinegar), sandwiches such as the Roast Beefeclectic on fresh-baked ciabatta (with caramelized onions, horseradish cream, and au jus), or a crab cake with smoked coleslaw and dijon mustard cream sauce. Ask about specials, since they may not always be mentioned (but if one is lentil soup, made from the chef's mom's recipe, you want it). In fact, ask for anything, if you notice a cheese or cured meat in the market counter that isn't being used on the menu. This eatery is informally friendly, yet unusually creative, enough that the chef might well accommodate you.

Overzealous lovers of vodkas and gins and cognacs are called alcoholics no matter which way you slice it, but wine lovers' affection for their potion is so severe they have their own cute little moniker: wino. These grape-loving creatures roam the Earth searching for a vine from the right place at the right time. They twirl wine glasses, looking at legs and sniffing the head. They let the juice coat their tongues and, finally, let it trickle down their throats. Mmmmm. Bin No. 18 is an... More »
Just because you're operating your business on a pauper's budget is no reason you can't be a power player in the business lunch game. It's all about one-upmanship. A 24-ounce porterhouse at an expensive steakhouse may be the obvious way to impress, but you can win points on insider info if you take your opponent -- that is, your business colleague -- to this new (and as yet largely undiscovered) European-style market/bistro. The decor, a mix of contemporary industrial (loftlike high... More »
