SERENITY NOW: This cozy Oakhurst spot proves wine bars don't have to be pretentious. The restored Scottish Rite Hospital has transformed into a low-key hangout decorated with a mix of antiquish furniture and dark walls covered in paintings by local artists from the adjoining gallerythe best spot is the window-filled room where you can gaze out onto the sleepy neighborhood.
WET YOUR WHISTLE: Wines are sold in four tiers available by the glass or bottle. The selection won't wow connoisseurs, but has a smart mix of New and Old World varietals. The bar also has an impressive list of small-batch spirits and Hot Buttered Rum from the seasonal cocktail menu is a nice way to take the edge off the cold weather.
A MATTER OF TASTE: The menu includes straightforward dishes such as bruschetta, macadamia nut encrusted scallops and baked tilapia - hardly revolutionary - but the chef's cheese plate would be perfect alongside a glass of wine.
