    Almost overwhelming wine list. When in doubt, the house carafe is great. Papas bravas for vegetarians.

    Oysters were only shucked to order and fresh even if not served on ice, $2.50 each. Pulpo a la fiera (grilled octopus with crispy potatoes) and salmon tartare were great! Meet the Winemaker nights!

    OYSTERS: $1 M-F 5-7; S&S 3-7P. It’s got a ton of character, is filled with regulars, and has way better food than a poppin’ wine bar in this part of town really needs to have.

    Dollar Oyster happy hour is legit, but try the charcuterie plate with hand picked cheeses and meats. On the pricier side ($24 for 6 items) but pairs well with wine and oysters.
