Though he's lent his talents to judge culinary events and collaborate on a book, The New American Chef, Spanish-born chef Mariano Aznar is at his best when he's in the kitchen. He draws from 30 years of culinary experience and skills honed at restaurants in France, Spain, and New York City to design modern menus, each based on his love for traditional Latin cooking. Aznar transforms old recipes into new ones, as evidenced by his small plates of Spanish cheese, chicken stew, and ceviche, as well as larger dishes such as seafood paella and chimichurri-seasoned skirt steak. Liquid Kitchen's dining room also reflects his colorful heritage: deep red lights cast their glow on exposed brick walls and dark wood accents, and blue ones illuminate a bar sided by rough-cut stone.

In 1936, nearly three years after the end of Prohibition, Station Plaza Wine and Spirits opened its doors. And so long as alcohol has remained legal, Station Plaza has remained on Kraft Avenue, its shop stocked with top-shelf spirits including brandy, tequila, and sambuca.
Though it has a wide selection of hard liquor, the store really specializes in wine. Its collection includes more than 2,500 hand-selected labels from around the world. Wine consultants can help narrow down a patron’s search for the perfect bottle by wine type, region, or producer, and they can even steer customers in the direction of more hard-to-find varietals or organic wines. The Station Plaza team also champions wines that rank in their top-rated category. The discerning criteria for inclusion on this list are taste and seasonality, rather than whether it stains your lips an attractive color. To learn more, check out the wine blog one of Station's owners contributes to.
