Vintage Enoteca, 7554 Sunset Blvd., Hollywood

Vintage Enoteca has claimed its place as one of the most stimulating wine bars on the Sunset Strip. Masterfully blending a tone of Hollywood casual with a minimalist New York décor, this cozy neighborhood eatery showcases Italian gourmet food and a carefully cultivated selection of beers and wine in a relaxed and elegant setting.


Owners Danielle Francois and Jennifer Moore walked away from booming careers in advertising to pursue their dream of opening a west coast destination for lovers of sophisticated but affordable cuisine. Small plates include medjool dates with manchego and goat cheese, house-made pickled vegetables, and deviled eggs topped with choice of bacon, salmon or caviar. Varieties of bruschetta range from blue crab with mint and lemon, asparagus with succulent onion jam, and chicken liver pâté. Those seeking more substantial fare will delight in the variety of gourmet panini, savory flatbreads and pasta dishes available.
