AMBIENCE GoodSmall bites go international at Sip City. Enjoy the Singapore street noodles with minced chicken and napa cabbage, a Beijing duck spring roll, anglerfish termed East African with coconut curry and lime-grilled pineapple. Return to the United States via tender beef brisket with onions and a white-bean ragout, and an updated Caesar salad finished with a pecorino-cheese tuile.

The wine comes first at The Vine, but food that goes with it is pretty good, too. The sleek spot's offerings include cheeses, cured meats, panini and appetizers that include prosciutto-wrapped melon, hummus and white bean-tapenade dip. The red velvet cupcake is a satisfying sweet, along with berries and cream. Mainly high tables with stools, low sofas.
