Enoteca on the lower level of Francesca's on Chestnut.

Our Review

Scott Harris's quest for world domination proceeds apace with this snug wine bar in the basement below Francesca's on Clark. The menu of small bites, bruschetta, cheese, and charcuterie owes a great deal to Harris's Taylor Street hit Davanti Enoteca—so much so that one wonders if he's deliberately trying to dilute their mutual brands. He's certainly not trying to reinvent the wheel with the minimally prepared plates, winningly with truffle egg toast—essentially Toad in Hole with very slight truffle accent, and a supercreamy jar of ricotta you're meant to mix with a dollop of honeycomb. The charcuterie (at least the soppressata) is nothing special, but gets the job done. In any case, it's not a bad little spot—dark with a vaulted brick ceiling—to work your way down the extensive wine list, with a few perfectly acceptable little bites.
