The crowds are pulled in by happy hour (daily), but it's certainly worth sticking around for dinner. The kitchen rises to great heights! On our first visit (but definitely not our last), my wife and I sampled several dishes, including a yummy flatbread topped with bleu-cheese cream, fig preserves, prosciutto, bacon and carmelized onions. We moved on to the braised veal cheeks (outstanding, but a mite salty), kettle chips and garlic sauteed spinach. All of these were small plates (which is how we like to dine in our old age), but packed with flavor and smoothly accompanied by a Markham merlot and a "house" tempranillo. My initial disappointment that the rabbit stew had been exhausted that night melted away when I tucked into the veal cheeks. Though small, the ambiance is pleasant, and there is outside dining for those "in-between" nights or occasionaly mild-day lunches. The service was attentive and friendly. Prices are reasonable, especially for early diners who take advantage of happy hour. This little below-the-radar wine bar and bistro has risen to the top our favorites in Baton Rouge.
