It’s kind of a motif in this city to have food and drink establishments located in retrofitted homes, and Bottlehouse is a perfect example. Eating here feels like having wine and cheese at your fancy friend’s colonial house, and it’s far away from most of the big tourist spots. But this is not the place to pound bottles of moscato with your girls in record time before karaoke. This is where a cheesemonger will select food pairings as you swirl around your glass pretending to tell the difference between chenin blanc and pinot blanc.
