it's a wine bar that masquerades as a restaurant

It’s pizza and burgers and a few entrees and deserts, nothing challenging or offensive and everything’s tasty and not especially expensive.

But it’s all wrapped in the tinsel of the modern architecture revival that’s been popular for the last few years. It just seems like just another faceless, mid-priced place to eat. And it would be if it weren’t for the silly pretension of a “wine bar.”

Ugh, I like wine but elevating it to the level of fetishism is just absurd to me. Wine is something you drink with food. In this place the food seems more like it was added to complement the wine selection.

The menu said something like “sustainably farmed” or some such thing. The menu description wasn’t as creepily excessive as some places I’ve seen, but I’m rather more concerned about how good the food tastes than where it comes from.
