It may not look like much on the outside, but inside, you feel like you're in a cave. They have these cool fountains for wine, kinda like a soda fountain. Their small plates were delicious. Get the scallops dish.

The Cave is basically a wine store, but one with an excellent kitchen and dining room with lots of "by the ounce" wine. You can buy a card for "x bucks" and use it for a variety of wine selections. The food is surprisingly good...More
