Fine wine sometimes has a haughty reputation, but at its best, wine is a casual beverage to enjoy with friends?a shared experience in a bottle. Likewise, with its trendy, industrial decor, Silo.5% Wine Bar surrounds patrons with a setting that's both refined and unpretentious. Enormous floor-to-ceiling windows provide sweeping views of the outdoors, while the bright green accents and barstools add splashes of color to the concrete columns and exposed ductwork. Mezzanine-level seating overlooks the couches and swiveling armchairs on the ground floor. The sister restaurant of the award-winning 13.5% Wine Bar in Hampden, "Silo.5% Wine Bar is the kind of stylish place you want to dress up for, and people do," noted The Baltimore Sun, "but it's not essential."

One of the ground floor's more striking features is the collection of wall-mounted wine racks that extends beyond the length of the bar. These racks support a hefty number of wines from Silo.5%'s extensive list, which can include more than 30 options by the glass and more than 200 by the bottle. In addition to the perennial favorites, the wine list features less ubiquitous varietals from countries such as Greece and Austria. Not content with pouring wine and saving the corks to build a raft, the bartenders also craft classic and contemporary cocktails. When combined with the accommodating service, this diverse drink selection helped Silo.5% Wine Bar earn a spot on Baltimore magazine's 2013 list of the 25 Best Bars: New Favorites.

Of course, wine is best paired with food, so Silo.5% Wine Bar also curates an eclectic, ever-changing menu of upscale comfort foods. Shareable small plates showcase the variety of local and international inspiration, as in the tacos filled with pork belly braised in soy sauce. In every recipe, the kitchen strives to use sustainable ingredients such as grass-fed beef, freshly caught fish, and handmade pasta.

To get a sense of The Greene Turtle's commitment to the neighborhood, one need only sit at the bar and look up. Dozens of mugs hang above the counter, emblazoned with the pub's logo and a unique number—each one belongs to a recurring patron. The Mug Club awards its members with draft-beer discounts and other specials, but more importantly, it allows loyal patrons to feel as though they own small slices of the venue without tattooing their names on the bartender's arm. This sense of shared familiarity is what fuels the entire franchise, which refrains from calling its locations "restaurants" in favor of friendlier terms: gathering places, communities, havens.

Many of the locations contribute more than mugs to their districts. Staff members who participate in the annual Tips for Tots program donate the entirety of one day's tips to a nearby Toys for Tots initiative, and Tuesday Funds for Friends events benefit local organizations. These efforts have been chronicled by press sources such as Food and Drink magazine, with features that liken The Greene Turtles' philanthropic generosity to the generous portions of comfort food that leave the kitchens.

From cheeseburger sliders and flatbread pizzas to handmade lump-crab cakes, the offerings on the menu embrace barroom traditions along with ingenuity. The steak and chicken entrees arrive with classic sides of green beans and yukon gold mashed potatoes, whereas the eastern shore mac ‘n’ cheese updates a comfort staple with chopped bacon, lump crab, scallions, and Old Bay seasoning. Diners can enjoy their meals by the glow of private flat-screen TVs—there's one in every booth—or beneath one of many larger televisions broadcasting sports games throughout the venue.

Not everyone who loves wine is fortunate enough to transform that love into a viable career, much less a successful business. But Christopher Spann did just that with Wine Market Bistro, whose numerous accolades stand as testament to his achievement. More than 25 wines can be savored by the glass in the loft-like dining room, while the adjoining wine shop stocks more than 800 bottles ranging in varietal and region. These bottles can be enjoyed in the bistro for a small corkage fee. The wine-friendly menu fills the rustic-chic dining room with the aroma of house-made mini brats, diver scallops, and dry-aged ribeye. And in warmer months, diners can take their meals on the courtyard patio and cool off by piling ice block after ice block onto their laps.
