Armitage Wine Lounge & Cafe Restaurant Review: Often at wine bars the food is an afterthought. Not so at Armitage. Here the menu was created to complement the wine and there are enough choices to please even the pickiest palates. The appetizer menu includes a spinach/artichoke fondue. Add some bruschetta (three to an order) or a cheese flight and you’ve got the makings of a small party. For the heartier appetite we suggest a sandwich. The tri-tip press with Gouda, arugula and glazed onions is a great choice in that regard. We also recommend the panko-crusted eggplant sandwich that gets a mild kick from the red pepper aïoli. Still a little hungry? Check out the Chef Plates side of the menu where you’ll find a heritage breed pork loin and ahi tacos. Our favorite meal at Armitage, though, is Sunday brunch. The Armitage Benedict is anything but ordinary: the toast is Asiago, the ham is prosciutto, and the hollandaise has a pinkish hue thanks to a couple of secret ingredients. Wednesdays are popular as well because bottles of wine are half price all day long.
