The food menu includes paninis such as a BLT with smoky bacon from Madisonville, Tennessee, small plates such as smoked-salmon crostini with dill cream cheese, and flights of gourmet cheese and charcuterie. A long list of wines by the glass grants sippers access to eclectic, internationally cultivated flavors more easily than eating a diplomat’s passport.
Hinsdale Wine Shop
Hinsdale Wine Shop is the work of a team of experts. Across the street from the train station in downtown Hinsdale, the shop is full of wine that is curated by a team of skilled oenophiles. Those wines are documented in dispatches from published travel and wine writer Bruce Schoenfeld. The bottles come from a network of wine-industry professionals, whether they're inexpensive Australian wines or high-end, limited-release European and Californian wines. The shop, which has been open since 2003, works to cater to collectors as well as less experienced wine sippers.
