Bread and Bottle in Red Hook: Light Gourmet Lunch and Wine

Antipasti Plate at Bread and Bottle

The elegant wine bar and chalkboard menu at Bread & Bottle

My husband and I had a delicious light gourmet lunch at Bread and Bottle in Red Hook about a week ago. I heard great things about this new wine bar, so I was happy to have lunch there for the first time. It's a very airy, spacious, and sleek wine bar. The menu features mostly light fare including paninis, salads, bar snacks, and antipasti.

We shared a few items from the antipasti section (two veggies—hummus and curried cauliflower; two meats—wild boar pate and a mousse pate). We both ordered smoked salmon, goat cheese, and spinach panini sandwich for our entree.

I liked the presentation, and the charcuterie was very good quality. (I don't eat wild boar pate very often, but I enjoyed it.) The mustard was very intense—the kind of mustard that makes your eyes water, but you still want more! The smoked salmon had a softer texture than I'm used to, but it was delicious. The portions are on the small side, but the quality is excellent. I'd recommend the Bread and Bottle if you are looking for a place to have a quiet gourmet lunch and a glass of wine in Red Hook. Next time I go there, I will try one of their homemade pizzas.
