Apero Wine Bar

Apero is a small wine bar (there are only a few tables and barstools) in North Center with an approachable drink list that’s great whether you’re a brix expert or someone who needs to ask Siri what brix is. The menu covers a wide range, from bubbly rosés to citrusy skin contacts, with only about four choices per type of wine and glasses priced between $12-$19. They also have a short food menu with small bites and a couple of entrees—the seasonal tartines are particularly tasty, like one with pesto, pickled strawberries, and trout roe. The cozy space can fill up quickly with North Centerians, but that’s the perfect excuse to check out their back patio.
