Armitage Wine Lounge & Cafe Restaurant Review: Industrial chic and wine cellar cool come together at this Foothills wine bar. Sit on one of the plush sofas while you contemplate your options from the worldly wine list and food menu. Can’t decide on a wine? Consider trying a flight. For noshing, start with one --- or more --- of the interesting bruschetta or perhaps the grilled artichoke with its lemony basil aïoli. Sandwiches include prime rib sliders, while entrées range from lamb sirloin to a churrasco-drizzled sea bass. Our favorite days to visit are Saturday and Sunday when Armitage serves brunch with its signature Armitage Benedict, a jazzy egg dish with prosciutto, Havarti and asparagus on Asiago bread smothered with a pink-hued hollandaise. Peanut butter-encrusted french toast, aromatic with orange, vanilla and cinnamon and topped with cream cheese, strawberries and whipped cream, is among sweeter dishes. And, of course, there’s all that wine, which will take you around the world. On Wednesdays, all bottles are half off; the daily happy hour is an added bonus.
