You needn’t be an oenophile to get a kick out of (p.m.) Wine Bar, although, for anyone who is, the Red Wine Flight—three reds plus one tapa @ $20—is an offer that’s hard to pass up. But there are so many other delights inside this ancient storefront on the older, quieter end of Warren Street. There’s the witty decor, the tasty tapas (Diablos a Caballo—sundried dates stuffed with Valdeón blue cheese and wrapped in crispy bacon, $9),the sweet owner Kevin Moran behind the bar, and a passel of amusing regulars drinking wines by the glass, $7 - $11; real champagne, $12, or something stiffer from the full bar. Too peckish for tapas? A smallish entree, such as a bowl of delicious Spanish beef stew, $11, is always available. —Marilyn Bethany
