Restaurants: Wine/Martini Bar
With a decidedly California feel, this attractive wine bar boasts a barrel-vaulted ceiling, floor-to-ceiling windows and low-slung tables and couches. An appealing roster of small and not-so-small plates goes well beyond the ubiquitous cheese board. Come for the food, stay for the Enomatic, a self-serve dispenser that marries smart-card technology with sweet, sweet wine.
Soft seating, candlelight, and knowledgeable staffers fill this suburban wine bar with easy elegance. The reasonably priced wine list contains more than 400 selections, mostly from small boutique wineries, and a modest tapas menu includes cheeses, smoked salmon, and more. Afterward, stop in at the attached wine shop and take home some new favorites.
Cindy Good has always loved the small-town charm of Berea. Doing her part to snazz it up, Good opened a combination wine bar and retail shop. The knowledgeable shopkeeper tracks down the best labels from small producers' wines you won't find at grocery stores. Even better, two enomatic machines dispense tastes of 16 varieties, so customers can try before they buy. Wines are sold at state minimum prices. For those who wish to enjoy their booty on premises alongside, say, an artisan cheese board, a $7 cork fee is added.
Wood & Wine will never be a romantic Italian ristorante. But that doesn’t bother the west-side diners who fill the place almost nightly. The star of the show here is thin-crusted, wood-fired pizza. Round out the meal with hearty, flavorful, and justly priced pasta dishes. A handful of steaks and fish are available for the carb-phobic. Extensive wine list with more than few gems.
