Wine Kitchen added to Best of the Bay 2013

Don’t get us wrong: Club Waziema, Mini Bar, and Lion Pub are all crucial NoPa gathering spots—for those who were toddlers in the Clinton years. But now, there’s a place for people who drink their grapes in the proper glassware. Wine Kitchen matches mourvèdre and rosé to a cheese plate—dodging menu of sweetbreads, grilled scallops, and the like—so you can skip the subpar stemware and soggy nachos just down the street. 507 Divisadero St. (near Hayes St.), 415-525-3485

Daily Candy - Get Tipsy at Wine Kitchen

In the competition for neighborhood bars, it’s easy to be swayed by the next PYT to post up. (Hello, first-impression rose.)

Still, in the end, we all fall for the nice guy next door.

Meet Wine Kitchen, a no-frills watering hole opening this week.

Owners/managers and former line cooks Gregory Faucette and Jason Limburg are two buds making it all about you. Think of their new bar/eatery as the anti-wine bar: casually sourced decor with a best-friend’s-living-room vibe, a nonintimidating selection of international varietals they love, and a developing small plates menu of upgraded bar food (fried gnocchi with horseradish and chives; pulled pork belly sliders topped with chicken skin, cucumber, and Fresno chili pepper).

The comfy setup encourages getting-to-know-you-better conversations, and the bartender may even remember your name.

Things are really blossoming.
