If you are in Blue Ribbon Downing Street Bar, try a Margarita with Pueblo Viejo Blanco.
Cozy little place. A bit pricy, but they had incredible bacon bread.
Get the Riesling for sweet or Sauvignon blanc for dry.
If you enjoy watching awkward first dates you are in luck!
Great wine list!
Get a cocktail or wine recommendation. Cozy and small space gives intimate feel. Try the shooters!
Even the lemonade is great.
Great service. Awesome wines.
The tiniest bar I've ever been to.
Ambience is cosy. Focus on the specials not the menu items
Good coffee. The chorizo eggs Benedict was the best. Really wish they had a Benedict Cumberbatch though.
Do wine pours increase with foulness of weather? ❄️↗️🍷↗️
Tiny space but really cute. Just don't expect any privacy.. Maybe not best locale for a date
Great cocktails! Nice staff and a friendly low key atmosphere.
Try the Country Lawyer or the Port of Spain. Cocktails are great, but not the best I've had at the same price point. Cute and cozy spot though.
Drinks are expensive but a good value for the quality. Get in there. Feel fancy... But also thrifty.
A little expensive but a lot of options for late night. Especially in an area where most restaurants close late.
Get the country lawyer. Sometimes they take it off the menu, ask the bartender for it. You won't regret.
Smokey squirrel is delicious
Repeat after me: Choc chip bread pudding. Choc chip bread pudding.
The smoked duck and foie gras toast is insanely good.
Smoked duck and foie gras toast!!!
Amazing spot for brunch. The smoked salmon and poached eggs dish is delicious! Must try the cream tomato soup, best I've ever had!
Breadsticks are yum
Forget about the pudding...Have their chocolate bruno!-also, if you are into mezcal their "humorita" is outstanding :)
Amazing burger. And don't leave without getting dessert...the bread puddings are insanely good.
Food is good but it's pretty pricey
Great find in a great neighborhood. Drinks are solid and the atmosphere low key. Perfect for a casual date and non chalante conversation
This place is just awesome and cozy and everything good. Food was amazing and the wine selection really great. Bartender is super friendly and had A++ suggestions.
Country Lawyer is the way to go.
Fried chicken and bone marrow. Do it.
If it's available, definitely go for the smoked duck & foie gras toast. It's super tasty.
Always rocks. Order a cocktail and some eggs.
Get the Bruno!
This tiny wine spot keeps it interesting with its wine list that crosses many oceans and spans all price points. Lots of bottles and half bottles under $45 like French Minervois and Mallorcan White.
Excellent Canadian Riesling wine!
Daily specials rock - and the wine flights - and the egg and pickled pepper toast (a staple!) Must eat everything!
A perfect first date spot, Blue Ribbon Downing Street Bar is a great place to get a cocktail, split one of the specialty toasts, & if the date is going well, wander across the street for dinner.
The steak tartare is just the best I've ever had!
The Downing Street Old Fashioned is really top notch!
Bring a date for a wine flight and egg shooters with caviar.
A cozy little spot for drinks with snacks from the Blue Ribbon restaurant next door. We like the oysters and caviar egg shooters.

Tiny spot, great for a date. Have eaten at least 500 of their delicious breadsticks.
Great place to meet for drinks but it's tiny so you have to either go early or after 11pm. Food is delicious here too! A little on the pricy side but worth it.
DAILY SPECIALS. #seriously.
