3500 Winehaus offers classic wine-bar fare too accompany its extensive selection of wines by the glass and bottle. Inside offers bistro seating and couches to lounge in or, when weather permits, oenophiles can indulge their pleasures on the patio. 3500 Winehaus' concise menu includes meat-and-cheese plates as well as sweet and savory cakes from Hank's Cheesecakes.
The diminutive Blue Nile Market and Café is half grocery store, half restaurant. The modest menu works as a primer on Ethiopian cuisine, with each dish served atop injera, a spongy bread that's employed in lieu of a utensil. Dishes include tibs (sautés) with mildly spicy beef and, for the truly adventurous, kitfo (raw, finely chopped beef). The vegetarian combo brings small servings of four excellent vegetable dishes.
A Snickers bar and a Coke would be an odd, out of place even, accompaniment to enjoying a relaxing seat in the lush, historic lobby of the Paul Brown building. Fortunately, connected to that lobby, chocolate aficionados can find a more apt taste of toothsome delights. Behind the glass cases in Cafe Cioccolato, in a rainbow of browns and reds and yellows and whites, sit rows of decadent little treasures brought over from the continent, each one labeled with its region of export. Try a French caramel or a Swiss truffle or taste a Belgian Neuhaus creation made from only pure cocoa butter. Cioccolato also offers a few bites made in-house, such as their chocolate-covered caramel coins. The chocolatier sells espressos and hot chocolate in addition to their saccharine morsels, and their 5 p.m.-to-7 p.m. happy hour features beer, wine and liquor, and other specially prepared food. Patrons can sit in one of the cafés large, comfy chairs and taste a bit of sweetness from the Cocoa Belt.
Attached to the Bowood Farms nursery in the Central West End, Café Osage offers breakfast and lunch fare featuring produce grown in a garden across the street, bison raised by Bowood Farms and house-smoked and -cured meats. Led by chefs David Guempel (Zinnia) and David Kirkland (Frazer's Brown Bag), the kitchen turns out an excellent take on the classic BLT with thick bacon, Brie, tomato jam and arugula, as well as a fine Carolina-style pulled-pork sandwich. The space, between the indoor nursery and a courtyard, is lovely.
When you walk in, head to the right and break left before you get to the shelves full of cleaning products (all of which have the same color and design as the Mr. Clean you know, but a completely different brand name). You'll find a whole wall of saints candles. Included in the venerable wall are both Santa Muerte and Jesus Valverde, and you won't find them at Catholic Supply. This little detour solidifies what we know about Carniceria Latino Americana located in Gravois Park: it's a corner shop on Cherokee Street (just a block down from Apop Records) that's firmly grounded in Mexican culture. Heck, the sign even says "Mexico Viva Aquí." It's a cornerstone in a neighborhood exploding with taquerias, a stretch of Cherokee steadily pushing for a renaissance. Let's not forget that it's a carniceria (butcher shop); there's carne aplenty, and groceries to boot. Marketwise you can get everything here, including phone cards. It's a Mexican market. Just, you know, not in Mexico.
