Description

The name refers to a person who tends to a wine cellar, though in this case it’s longtime local wine guru David Butler holding court in this small, high-ceilinged wine bar, a welcome discovery on an otherwise beige block of Seventh Avenue near Westlake. Beneath the mood-altering gleam of two massive chandeliers, Butler and his staff help shepherd Franco- curious wine drinkers through a chalkboard list of 30-odd reds and whites (every bottle is from France and most glasses go for $10 or less). The food menu doesn’t stray much beyond cheese, charcuterie, a few salads, and poisson en papillote, a focus that feels special rather than limited.
