+ 54 Mint Wine Bar’s Italian Charm
SOMA's new 54 Mint Wine Bar is technically a three-in-one punch of vineria (wine bar), ristorante, and alimentari (food store), but really it's all imported deliciousness. As the only distributor of some of its Italian fine wines to the straight-from-Italy sheep's milk cheese and handmade Italian plates, 54 Mint serves up an authentic Italian meal that tastes even better coming from the hand of the heavily accented servers.
This hotspot is the work of native Umbrian owners Alberto Avalle (of NYC's Il Buco fame) and Claudio Ricciolini- and 54 Mint can't be a better ode to their homeland. Even the famous Umbrian olive oil is sprinkled into nearly every dish and is even displayed beautifully for customers to buy.
During good weather, make sure to hit up the patio for some great people watching in the trendy SOMA district.
