Sit at one of the high tables in V-Bar, order a crisp aromatic white --maybe the Scarbolo Sauvignon-- and let the bar snacks begin. Start with frico --lacy, tender-crisp Parmesan wafers -- or wonderful,. lemony marinated olives. A gleaming pair of sardoni -- Italian sardines -- hides a little salad of roasted red peppers and mozzarella. Lovers of fried calamari will go for calamaretti e bianchetti fritti -- crisply fried baby squid and tiny white fish that come spilling out of a cone.
Launched in 2007, V Bar (formerly Vin Bar) exudes a sleek, modern feel in keeping with the format of its more contemporary “primi” or small plates menu. Patrons are encouraged to casually drop in to this informal wine bar space and enjoy both food and wine recommendations from the Piero or the knowledgeable waitstaff. Our V Bar is the perfect place to meet for a cocktail or glass of wine after work or on the weekend.
