Owner/sommelier Leonard G. Logan, Jr. has polished his wine tasting skills over 19 years of interaction with some of the world's best winemakers. So it's no surprise that Logan is a champion of food and wine pairing, as best seen in the nightly six-course wine dinner. Chef Brad Price has been in the kitchen since 1998 and the rest of the staff (a k a "the family") tends to stay on as well. While the spot was once a hot dog joint, it has traded fast food decor for European charm. The main dining room French country, while a second space sports rustic wine racks on stone walls. In 2008, the wine shop became a wine gallery, offering small plates and wine flights, as well as Chef Price's oil paintings.
