We’re just saying you probably don’t have one where you can partake of wine flights and mushroom-stuffed quail while getting a little closer in a semiprivate corner nook under a map of South America.
Which is more or less the scenario at Scopo Divino, a humble yet charming new wine bar that’s now open in Pacific Heights. Here, have a look.
It’s the kind of place that feels cozy, classic and refreshingly free of pretension. The kind of place with pressed-tin ceilings, a brasserie-style zinc bar and parchment-style maps representing different wine regions painted on the walls.
A pair of stools at the bar could work, but head to the far back corner instead. You’ll find a couch for two there, where you’ll look over this menu featuring food from a Benu and M. Benjamin alum. And wine. Lots of wine.
Specifically, 36 by the glass and more than 50 bottles, all of which can be taken to go. For now, though, maybe you’ll share a Sicilian red or a French champagne. Definitely a round of charcuterie or that mushroom-stuffed quail with fresh gnocchi.
And coming soon: a wine flight situation, plus lunch and brunch.
And probably more lunch and brunch dates.
