Wellington's Wine Bar
Fast Forward SummaryTM: Wellington's Wine Bar offers wine flights starting at $12, and takes advantage of its position sharing a building with cooking school In the Kitchen (ITK) to offer food without having to develop their own menu or kitchen staff. Pleasant location at the water's edge, next door to Salito's Crab House and Bar Bocce on Bridgeway just north of downtown, and there's a small deck area in back where you can sit outside on a nice day and sip wine while watching boats in the harbor. Inside there's an inviting variety of tables, sofas, conversation corners etc. as well as a bar and a big-screen TV. We like the prosciutto and the ham-and-cheese panini, and there's a great cheese and sliced meats plate that's perfect for sharing. We also like the pleasant, "not snooty" tone the staff projects when you ask questions about wine.
