The wine gurus at The Wine Cafe instill their deep love of the grape-fermented drink in others with a long-winded wine list and a tastefully matching menu. While slurping down a glass of Woop Woop's Australian chardonnay ($6), diners can snack on deluxe sandwiches such as the salami-stuffed and tapenade-topped Italian ($6.50–$8.50), or accompany a build-your-own pizza ($11) with 16 available garnishes and Gnarly Head's California zinfandel ($6/glass).

For dessert, save wear and tear on your teeth by ordering a banana cream cheesecake ($3.50) and imagining how good it must taste while sipping Casillero del Diablo's merlot ($7) or a beer.

New Osaka’s design reflects this artistic mindset, too, with its modern décor and elevated dining area. Guests can sit there or, if they want to watch the chefs assemble their elegant creations, at the sushi bar. Nearby, a full-service bar dishes out imported and domestic beers, cocktails, and plum wine.
