The city’s best new wine bar isn’t a wine bar. It’s a cozy Andersonville tavern whose menu reads like a greatest hits of European staples. Following the lead of the “food-friendly” wine—a modern flammenkuchen shares the page with carrot agnolotti and pulpo gallego—and no one will bat an eyelash if you order all three. Wood-clad booths and a long marble bar lend the place old-school comfort, and great service elevates the experience to date-night status. Non-winos, take note: Income Tax’s handful of cocktails on offer are lovely as well.
THE DRINK TO DRINK: Take a nod from the menu and jump around. Start with the fairly standard Spritz, have wine with dinner, and end the evening with Underberg “bottle service.”
KNOW BEFORE YOU GO: There are occasionally “open bottle” specials on wines the staff is trying out for kicks. Ask your server what’s up.
