This is a deli and wine bar run by the people behind the Patron bistro a few doors away, and what they do is simple and pretty much foolproof: buy cheeses and cured meats of impeccable quality, cut them into slices, and put them on a plate. As long you don’t drop the plate, nothing can go wrong. Add some serious wines available by the glass, and you’ve succeeded in an excellent early-evening session.
