Ordinaire Wine Bar/Shop in Oakland

mdougherty Sep 8, 2013 12:19 PM

I stopped in at Ordinaire (3354 Grand Ave) Friday night. I had a glass of rose that hit the spot on a warm evening. It's a nice space, lots of wood. They've got ~8 wines on tap plus ~8 more by the glass from bottles. Three cheeses are available, plus a speck plate, and a salami plate. We didn't try the food. The shelves have bottles for sale, mostly from California, but also a small selection from France, Italy, and Germany.

    I liked seeing wine by the glass prices under $10 on the FB photo, seems to be becoming more of a rarity these days.

        The former Taste is now Mint Leaf, an Indian restaurant.

          There was also a wine bar called Oggi (formerly Cioccolata Di Vino) in the Gourmet Ghetto that closed June 1.
