Small enough to feel cozy but not quite cramped, the interior inside of the French bistro Cafe Rabelais is tailored for an intimate, quiet meal. If the bottles lining every available wall or the textbook masquerading as a wine list wasn’t indication enough, the folks at Cafe Rabelais take their wine seriously. With literally hundreds of options to choose from, you can dig through the pages for the exact glass you’re looking for, or let your server take the helm and make the decision for you. Whatever you decide to sip on, pair it with some mussels in a rich cream sauce, or with escargots swimming in garlic butter. And maybe imagine what the Parisian countryside feels like for a while.
