Best Wine Bar Fort Lauderdale and Palm Beach 2013 - The Wine Dive
319 N. Clematis St.
West Palm Beach, FL 33401
Is it a dive? Not at all. Is there wine? Plenty — 40 reds and 20 whites by the glass, dispensed by the ounce from a sophisticated Enomatic dispenser system where argon — a noble gas — keeps open bottles good for more than 30 days. The result is an impressive array of vino in a casual-chic setting from nearby Roxy's Pub owner John Webb. The slogan "Not So Snooty" is proudly proclaimed on servers' T-shirts. That means you'll never feel out of place, underdressed, or pressured to order an expensive wine. The technology keeps bottles fresh, meaning you can sample just a two-ounce tasting until you find the perfect mate for your plate. Also be prepared for what comes out of the kitchen — "American tapas" like the fried chicken for two served with a Tabasco-honey mustard slaw. There's live jazz on Thursday and Friday, and brunch Saturday and Sunday offers bottomless bloody marys for $10.
