Prova
review by Gabriella Opaz

In the heart of Porto’s historical center—a maze of medieval alleys, cobbled streets and baroque monuments—Prova has become a magnet for wine lovers. And Diogo Amado has become a player in the revival of Porto’s vibrant city center since he opened this chic narrow bar, ...Read the full review

O Gaveto
review by Gabriella Opaz

As a gentle breeze carries mouthwatering aromas of salt and sardines grilling over hot coals, a pescador (fisherman) sits on a wooden box mending and patching green mesh to the sound of the sea. A long line of assadores (grill masters)—often the restaurant owners—stand terrace-side gripping worn ...Read the full review

O’Paparico
review by Gabriella Opaz

Should you find your way to O’Paparico’s elusive door, simply grab the copper knocker and rap-tap-tap your way into a parallel universe filled with glowing candelabras, gourmet pestiscos (tapas) and exceptionally gracious service. Savor small dishes of Azeitão, an unpasteurized sheep’s milk cheese produced at ...Read the full review

Pedro Limão
review by Gabriella Opaz

Cozy and unassuming, Pedro Limão’s newest creation values friendship and conversation. With mismatched chairs, thick wooden-slatted tables and blues playing in the open kitchen, the atmosphere feels welcoming—especially when Limão’s wife, Catia, is by the door, greeting guests with a refreshing lemon-lime-mint infusion. As ...Read the full review

Casa de Cha da Boa Nova
review by Gabriella Opaz

As waves crash on the rocky shores of Leça de Palmeira, and gentle Atlantic winds carry salty aromas inside Casa de Chá da Boa Nova, the division between space and time dissolves. Famed Portuguese architect Alvaro Siza built the Boa Nova Tea House in 1963, and restored it 50 years ...Read the full review

Vertical Detroit
review by Eric Vrtis

As the name suggests, the focus is on wine—1,000 wines by the bottle and 70 by the glass, including many verticals. While they’ve stocked the cellars with heavy hitters like Lafite, Domaine de la Romanée-Conti and Opus One, owner Remy Lutfy and sommeliers Joey Lopaka and Devin Muylle ...Read the full review

The Royce
review by Eric Vrtis

Angela Rutherford and Ping Ho opened The Royce last fall, a wine bar and retail store in Grand Circus Park. It’s an elegant space, housed in the historic Kales Building, designed by Albert Kahn, with art deco lighting and library ladders to access the walnut shelves. Those shelves ...Read the full review

Selden Standard
review by Eric Vrtis

Evan Hansen credits a glass of Schäfer-Fröhlich 2002 Nahe Riesling for turning him on to wine. He’s found an outlet for his obsession at Selden Standard, opened in late 2014 with chef Andy Hollyday, a three-time James Beard Awards ...Read the full review

Chartreuse Kitchen & Cocktails
review by Eric Vrtis

Chartreuse is the color and focus of this space in Midtown, a stone’s throw from the Detroit Institute of Arts. Owner Sandy Levine has amassed an enviable collection of the French digestif, with bottles dating back to the 1940s, plus Elixir Végétal, Liqueur du 9e Centenaire ...Read the full review

Wright & Company
review by Eric Vrtis

When chef Mark Djozlija and cocktail whiz Dave Kwiatkowski talked about opening a restaurant, they wanted a place for people like themselves, who consider cheese-smothered chips and beer just as viable for dinner as a coursed-out meal with cocktails and wine. They’ve created that place in ...Read the full review
