Tannat is a great place to drink wine. They offer around 20 wines by the half or full glass, and the long bottle list has lots of options under $60, including a bunch from some of the top natural wine producers in the world. You’ll be very happy coming here just to drink, but don’t miss out on the rotating small plates that are cooked behind the bar, like a medley of different mushrooms cooked in butter and wine, or spaghetti squash carbonara with beet pesto and slices of rich guanciale.
