Amelie Le Bar à Vin Restaurant Review

: Owners Germain Michel and Samie Didda's concept of affordable wines and equally wallet-friendly French snacks has kept them popular on Polk Street. And no wonder---the wine list is generous, offering 20 reds and whites by the glass, and roughly 100 by the bottle. Not surprisingly, cheese and charcuterie plates are the strongest contenders to pair with the wines. Cheese plates come alongside La Brea Bakery breads, house-made apricot and pear ginger spreads, honey and fresh fruit. Charcuterie is a savory assortment of hot coppa, salami, duck prosciutto, onions stewed in grenadine, and mustard with a spiciness that rivals wasabi. Cracker-thin pizzas are layered with kale, sweet-tart grenadine syrup, and portobellos. Raviole du Dauphine are stuffed with Comté and cottage cheeses and dominated by a rich béchamel. Amelie’s cool, lounge vibe is punched up with eclectic elements such as a chandelier constructed of letters penned by customers and wall-mounted illuminated wine bottle art.
