Velo Bistro Wine Bar

Velo Bistro Wine Bar


The scene: Attracts all ages of the hip and sophisticated. The cycling-related memorabilia on the walls (velo is French for “bike”) adds a somewhat eccentric touch.
The list:
Twenty wines by the glass; 40 by the bottle. Chef and co-owner Anthony DeVanzo loves unconventional varietals such as the Gamay Noir from France. $9-$15 a glass; $27-$91 a bottle.
The favorite:
Chile’s emerging Carmenere, a fruity red with a bit of a spicy finish.
Don’t miss:
Once a month, Velo offers up a prix fixe, four-course (and four-glass) dinner. For each dish served, DeVanzo finds the wine that complements the plate’s flavor and mood.

Velo Bistro Wine Bar
Open Sun., Tues.-Thurs. 5-10 p.m., Fri.-Sat. 5 p.m.-1 a.m.
