Heroic Wine Bar is an expensive spot on Santa Monica Blvd. in Santa Monica that’s convenient for a glass of wine, but we wouldn’t recommend having a meal here because the food is overpriced and bland. There’s a regular bar counter, but if you’re eating, there’s a good chance you’ll sit at the big communal table in the middle, which means you could very well wind up staring directly across the table at two people on a first date.
