Enophiles bring their own Riedel crystal wine glasses to La Vista. After all, you can’t savor a Bordeaux red in just any glass. If you forget, don't worry because there’s a great wine shop next door.

$10 pickup on pizzas Sunday and Monday's. Delicious!
Great service and decor, and dimly lit. Menu is focused and grilled entrees are fantastic. Sit outside and BYOB. A wonderful view of Uptown too.
