THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Vinocity Wine Bar & Restaurant Restaurant Review

: A youthful team of native Atlanta 30-somethings has crafted a fine wine and food experience that is designed to draw the young at heart and the adventurous of palate. The former residence once belonged to famed Atlanta writer Celestine Sibley, but now its intimately lit, modern spaces have been re-configured for romantic and business dining. Wines are the focus, and the list is set up to permit both by-the-glass and by-the-bottle enjoyment, with prices at a most accessible level. A small reserve list contains a few high-priced star bottles. Among the nifty selection of small plates for tapas-style dining, we like the saganaki, the classic Greek dish in which kasseri cheese is flambéed with sambuca, rather than ouzo, giving it a sweet nuance. Diver scallops with oyster mushrooms and applewood-smoked bacon cream are absolutely delectable. The deal of the day is the 22-ounce rib-eye with all the trimmings, but even the ten-ounce New York strip with a blue cheese gratin and deep-fried asparagus is enough to share. Desserts change almost daily, but the espresso-chocolate crème brûlée is the treat to target. A plate of artisan cheeses makes a great finish to the meal or a superior snack. While the wine list isn't great in terms of breadth or depth, it offers first-class choices with great value.
