Lagniappe is proof that not all wine bars are quiet, dim places that feel like libraries. This place gets packed and loud both inside - where you’ll find a weekly rotation of great jazz and plenty of good wine in a slightly cramped space - and outside, which is a back patio that all other back patios should aspire to be. There are string lights and tons of tables that look like they were collected from years of nearby garage sales. It’s hard to get one of those tables on the weekend - when they’re usually full of big groups or app dates - so come early or just do laps until you see an opening. A night spent drinking wine and eating cheese here is absolutely worth the work.
