Gray’s Hall promotes itself as a wine bar, and there’s certainly a lot of good wine here (no surprise considering that the same team also owns the wine and cheese store next door). But their small plates - put together by a former Tasting Counter chef - are stellar and the real reason you should visit. Almost everything is under $20, large enough for sharing, and really tasty - an impressive feat given the kitchen is smaller than Gisele’s accessories closet. We recommend the mussel toast, smoked salmon pâté, and eggplant milanese. The charcuterie platter is one of the best we’ve had in recent memory, which is more than we can say of Brady’s 2019 season.
