Bartavelle Coffee & Wine Bar

Berkeley, California

The Berkeley nook where Alice Waters once ran Cafe Fanny has given rise to a wine bar with a Chez Panisse–like touch. A light-bite menu of toasts and tapenades complements a short list of hidden-gem labels, culled exclusively from France and Italy: Think lean Lambruscos, peppery proseccos, and lush red blends from the Languedoc. Sip them by the glass or half-glass, at the tiny bar or on a patio so charming, you forget it’s in the corner of a parking lot.
