Master sommelier Chuck Furuya and D. K. Kodama (chef and owner of Sansei Seafood Restaurant & Sushi Bar ★ have created an Italian trattoria where the focus is on the wine. The wine selection—more than 30 varietals—changes almost weekly, and everything is available in tasting-pour portions so you can sample a wide variety. The menu is built to be uber-wine-friendly, with housemade pastas such as Ligurian-style trofie pasta and Dungeness crab linguine with a lobster and uni sauce.
