Almost exclusively Italian (though Wine Director Brandon Smith allows himself dalliances into Slovenia), the wine list here focuses along the same lines as the menu’s seasonal ingredients: family producers and sustainable farming, free from chemicals and additives.
Riot Dish: “The simplicity of the Borlotti Bean pane is part of what makes it so beautiful. We source these amazing heirloom beans from Ayers Creek farm in Gaston, OR, and after cooking them with simple aromatics they get pureed and spread over Filone toast from Roman Candle Bakery next door. The reserved whole beans are warmed through with rosemary and garlic olive oil and spooned on top. Lovingly referred to in the kitchen as bean toast, it’s a staff favorite and maybe the most popular menu item.”
