Finally dropped into Friends of the Vine, and it is Fantastic! Not inexpensive, but a fantastic selection. Fred (the owner) is a delight!

Stopped in for a 'final-final' with some business associates after dinner - awesome selection of wine - nice place to relax with a laid back vibe, good music mix playing and very cool waitress (sorry forgot her name). Cheers
