Though only operating since 2009, the Naked Grape is getting to be very popular with locals.
The Tuscan-style wine bar is decorated with wrought iron chairs and bar stools, handmade slate bar, extra-long cushioned window seat and rough-hewn, natural wood.
The food menu is limited, but the wine list is extensive. If you're unsure what to drink with your food, the menu suggests several pairings. The menu consists of tapas-like small plates, including antipasto, cheeses, figs and prosciutto or a special polenta or pasta. Prices are quite reasonable; most plates are priced at $5-$12.
First Wednesday is Flight Night, held the first Wednesday of every month, offering a tasting with food pairings and an informal lecture about the chosen varietal of the day. Priced at $25, the event's seating is limited. (Sign up for an e-mail newsletter for reminders.)
