    Don't go here for food. Too noisy, overpriced, average food. The so called French wine and dishes are everything but French.

    Tucked below the hustle and bustle of tourists pounding the pavement, is this all-too charming wine loving bistro. There's a healthy variety by the glass and plenty of drool-worthy affordable bottles. Read more

    Pair a glass of carefully curated wine with snacks from the counter, or grab a table to order off the bistro menu. – Green Guide Editor

    It may not end up being your regular but it's well-hidden enough to not be too crowded, a good quick walk away from most offices... Read more

    Don't forget that all wines are 50% off if you buy them for consumption off-site. Sample, and then take a bottle home!
