      1. Well...to be precise, it's between 12th and 11th on Wilshire on the north side of the street. Their website is http://www.rusticcanyonwinebar.com/

        I walked in the other night (live 2 blocks away) with a friend and we sat at a nice little table in the bar area and had a very tasty prosecco concoction made with pomegranate juice (they have a whole card full of these as well as an extensive wine list) and shared a middle eastern salad plate (or whatever they called it on the menu). It was great. I want to go back very soon. My only misgiving is their menu is quite limited at this point, but they just opened about 10 days ago.

        1. I also gave it a try, though last week, and found it to be very enjoyable. I do agree with some other posters regarding it being a bit "pricey."
          The wine list is small but interesting.
          Nice bread w/ tapanade (sp?).
          I just had a salad, good portion but, $$$.
          The staff was great. EVERYBODY was trying very hard to make the place work.

          If your looking for a deal, skip it. But if you've got the spare change (at this time of year) it's a nice addition to the neighborhood.

          As a side note: I wasn't there w/ my chowpup but I saw a guy there with his, and the 'pup (VERY well-behaved) seemed QUITE welcome !

          There was the cutest staff - 'pup "goodbye."
