Best Wine Bar

The Wine Market

It's easy to drink too much vino at a wine bar. What better place to try more than one vintage, eat party food, and leave behind empty bottles, right? We blame the tiny amounts of cheese and crackers, smoked meats, marinated mushrooms and olives . . . freaking tapas. What's wrong with providing solid, real plates of lovely edibles to go along with the $30 bottle of Spanish red we've been meaning to try? Nobody tries to have a winorexic night, but if we try to fill up on finger food, our constitution just doesn't have a fighting chance against the flood of delicious wine. The Wine Market in Locust Point is a delightful restaurant in a warehouse space with courtyard seating out back and a wine market in the front. Browse and grab a bottle at retail, pay a $9 corking fee--if that seems high, you've never worked in the restaurant business, where wine is marked up 100 percent--and partake of a menu offering entrée salads, seafood, sandwiches, and grilled meats. Plus, they have a weekend brunch with eggs.
