Historically, LA hasn’t been known for wine bars, but a recent surge of wine-centric openings, including Cassia’s sister spot Esters, is changing all that. Being that it’s a partnership between Josh Loeb and Zoe Nathan (Huckleberry, Milo & Olive, Rustic Canyon) and longtime collaborator and wine expert, Kathryn Coker, the highly curated booze offering is supported by an elegant menu of charcuterie, local and imported cheese, and more substantial dishes like grilled cheese and avocado toast. And as gorgeous as the interior of the Deco building that houses it may be, the best seats in the house are on the outdoor patio. The tiny on-site market is hostess/birthday/thank you gift heaven.
