Head to the south side of town to Hampton for dinner in both solid and liquid form; here, the wines are just as important as what you'll be eating. Just near Hampton Station and jazzing up an otherwise sleepy strip, Hampton Wine Co. is expertly run by an ex-Jacques Reymond team. The menu is made up of sharing plates with an emphasis on meat and seafood, but there are enough veg options to satisfy any surprise dietary requirements.
The bar is also a boutique bottle shop, so if you don't finish whatever wine you order from the menu, you can just take it home with you for a nightcap at yours.
