Review: If you love your wine, Terroir Wine Bar is the place for you! They have a great wine selection and a very knowledgeable and helpful staff in case you can’t decide from the huge wine list.  They also have some delicious small bites – chicken liver bruschetta, lamb sausage, and some great cheese and charcuterie plate options.  The candlelit, romantic atmosphere makes it great for a date, but the longer tables against the wall can accommodate bigger groups as well.  Either way It’s the perfect spot to go and try out new wines!

Review: We ventured over to Nobu next door for Restaurant Week and were pretty disappointed.  The dishes were tiny and the service was rushed.  The food was good and really tasty, but not a good value.  The boyfriend has been to the real Nobu and was blown away, but Next Door was extremely dissatisfying in comparison.  The dishes were truly just samples of what they had to offer, not a real dinner.  Nobu Next Door is most likely better non-Restaurant Week, but this experience doesn’t make us want to return.  It seemed like they were really just churning people through.  All in all we were not impressed.
