Oporto Food & Wine Bar
Tapas bars were all the rage five years ago, but somehow Oporto has managed to stay relevant despite the decline in the small plate frenzy. Here's why: The restaurant has high-quality food, an extensive wine list with a focus on delightful Portuguese, European and South American selections, creative cocktails and a cozy, low-key European vibe.
The space is small and narrow with a bar that nearly runs the length of the place and on the opposite side, booths for a more intimate experience. Either way, there's no shortage of counter- or table-top real estate to keep those small plates coming.
Just like their sister restaurant, The Queen Vic Pub & Kitchen, Oporto's drink and small bites happy hour selections are some of the city's most extensive and tasty.
