Do you know which local restaurant had been listed as having one of the best wine lists in the world for three years straight? That would be The Vineyard Wine Bar, of course. This North Washington Street establishment is not only a great place to try a fine vintage, but also an excellent spot for lunch or dinner.
This cozy and welcoming bar features light jazz and soft lighting to go with its impressive wine-by-the-glass list. Try a few with a set of three-ounce servings, or enjoy a full six-ounce glass. All regions and many different price points are featured here. If you’re hungry, you can enjoy small tapas-style plates, flatbreads, salads, sandwiches, and more. The pear and gorgonzola flatbread, with its chopped walnuts and port wine onions, is a particularly enticing option. The Caribbean shrimp po’ boy is another intriguing dish, stuffed with pineapple relish and cilantro lime aioli.
If you’re looking to bring a bottle home with you, peruse the wine shop, where you can choose from a collection of over 300 fine wines sourced from around the world.
