We were initially sad when the Capitol Hill location of Other Coast Cafe, one of our favorite sandwich spots, closed. But then La Dive took its place, serving frozen Sancerre slushies and glass bongs full of Champagne (or Miller High Life), and now we don’t miss the sub shop too much anymore. This place specializes in natural wine, and there are also Eastern European small plates like delicious spicy potato pelmeni dumplings and toasts topped with sardines and pickled fennel or hummus and miso. It’s the perfect place for a night out on Capitol Hill to drink some interesting wine, have a snack, and catch up with friends.
