Love unique spots? The sunken bar at The Compound is perfect. It was designed by noted designer Alexander Girard, the man responsible for that mid-century innovation, the conversation pit. The bartender at the 12-seat bar is at eye-level making conversation easy. The ambiance at the bar is convivial with guests interacting with each other. Want to nibble? The Compound puts out olives and crackers to enjoy with the wine. You can also order from the lunch or dinner menu. The philosophy here: "The selection and pairing of wine and food is the foundation of the dining experience. Each is meant to complement and inspire the other." The list has over 200 bottles; there are 14 wines offered by the glass priced from $13 to $25. Like a bottle on the list? Take it home. There's a 20% discount from the wine list price.
- Wine Bars: "If you want a sophisticated lunch paired with fine wines and even a martini or two, the bar at The Compound or one of their white linen tables brings back a time when lunch at the right spot was two hours and an occasion."
- Best for Wine Bars Because: It's worth going here just for the unique bar. The good wine list makes it that much better.
