Froma On Melrose
Where we've featured it
Perfect For: Lunch with your aunt that will be as quick as possible.
She’s been sending you texts that always begin “Dear Sarah” and end with “Love Hannah (your aunt)” for months wanting to catch up “just the two of us,” and it can’t be put off any longer. It’s time to be strategic - suggest Froma on Melrose during your lunch break for maximum control of the situation. She can have a salad, you can have the Alpino, and you can both have a glass of wine to keep things manageable. And, you’ll have to leave after 50 minutes to get back to the office - leaving 10 minutes for some breathing exercises in the car to help with recovery.
Strolling into a wine bar alone is one of our go-to power moves, and Froma on Melrose will not only give you some much-needed solo Pinot time, but delicious food as well. The Alpino and Bufala sandwiches are both tremendous, and the bartenders are really nice, too.
There are all kinds of things to eat at Froma - dips, pizza, salads - but we get one thing and one thing only. The Alpino sandwich. This, plus a bottle of wine, and Froma has your ideal outdoor meal covered.
