Please take just one.
Good choice. It’s called Oso Food & Wine, and it’s a small neighborhood bistro you’ll visit for outings that necessitate both food and wine, now open for dinner at Preston and Forest. (Take a look here.)
Oso means bear in Spanish. This place is neither Spanish nor bear-related. Instead everything’s all red and purple and friendly like some kind of colorful fresco that also serves chicken meatballs. The dining room’s split in two, and there’s a white, seven-seat bar in back. So now you know the layout, should anyone ask you about the layout.
Then go see it for yourself. Bring a date and settle in at a wooden table or a patterned booth along the wall. Make some light conversation. Share a meze platter. Ask to see a wine list. Debate whether you should get the pork chop Milanese or the braised oxtail, and then compromise by getting both.
Glad to see you’re on the same page.
