Riverfront Times' Description

An elegant new wine bar in downtown Webster, Robust offers a wide selection of wines by the bottler or the glass. The list is categorized by the wine's profile - that is, robust or generous reds, crisp or luscious whites - rather than varietal or region, and each dish on the menu is matched to a specific profile or two. That menu features small dishes, most of which are meant to be shared: cheeses, cured meats and flatbreads. Items that sound like traditional entrées (roasted chicken, flatiron steak) are served in small portions.

Located at the western end of what passes for Webster's downtown, Robust is the ideal place to enjoy being a grown-up again. The décor is classy, but the vibe is casual. Enjoy a full meal or take a... More >>
