The Wine Kitchen Restaurant Review: Drop by this tiny eatery on a Sunday and you’ll find a folk guitarist strumming and singing sentimental hits, families with kids digging into their food, and couples who’ve come by for a midday meal. True to their motto, management keeps it simple, focusing on gathering ingredients mainly from local artisanal purveyors and turning the goods into charcuterie, salads, seafood main dishes, and an unusual sandwich, the chef’s take on a croque monsieur, as gooey as the menu describes. Heftier dishes include quail and cornmeal waffles, braised chicken, and pork shank with Brussels sprouts and ham. If you want to eat light, ask about the specials of the day: not exemplary was the take on a French onion soup, far too delicate to compete with the traditional version. Save room for desserts such as cheesecake.
