This Somerville bistro, neighborhood-y as it may seem, is home to one of the city’s most extensive and diverse wine lists, helmed by Kai Gagnon, formerly of Craigie on Main. While the list covers a notable amount of ground, sometimes veering (in a good way) into esoterica, it’s approachable, offering a snapshot of some of Europe’s great small production producers and a by-the-glass list that tops two dozen options. The group is also behind BISq (Bergamot in Inman Square), a new Cambridge restaurant slated to open in the fall of 2014 that will focus on the wines of Northern France, Austria and Germany.

Known For
  • good wine

What to drink
The wine list is extensive and diverse, so there's truly something for everyone. But don't bypass southern France, where the list shows uncommon depth.
Many of the wines are available by the half-carafe.
