Everything about Le Caveau feels cool. It’s the wine bar you’ve always wanted in your neighborhood - where you can walk in unannounced on a Thursday night with a date and immediately impress them just by knowing it exists. The dark, moody spot sits right above another of our favorite places, The Good King Tavern, and is like it’s sophisticated, cigarette-smoking sister who only dates older Italian men. Their wine list is primarily made up of natural bottles and is divided between “France” and “Not France.” There’s also a short menu of bar snacks with things like a hot dog wrapped in a baguette and salted chocolate mousse. You could probably order enough food to make a full dinner, but you should be coming here more for the wine and to feel like you’re cooler than you actually are.
