Attached to cherished industry haunt Paulie’s (where you can get a badass plate of bucatini Amatriciana for $10), this bar’s wine list is curated by David Keck, one of the most accomplished sommeliers in town. Camerata’s strengths lie in its kung-fu grip on the classics, with a keen eye for modernity. As the host of the Houston Sommelier Assocation’s weekly meetings, Camerata also serves a well-organized study group for local wine professionals and nerdy consumers.
