Umana Wine Bar (Albany)

Umana Wine Bar:
On Western Ave. close to Lark St.
Had brunch at Umana recently.
Love the decor, ambience and vibe of Umana. You can tell the owner put her heart and soul into it. Attention paid to small details (gorgeous wood bar with brightly colored bar stools, murals on the walls, wood plates, milk & sugar servers, etc.). Now on to the food:
I had Peri Peri Shrimp Frittata with home fries and salad greens. Very good.
SO had Biscuits and Chorizio Sausage Gravy with home fries. He said their coffee was especially good.
Friendly, professional service. Owner/manager keeps a watchful eye.
This would be a good place for a group dinner or private party. Looks like they only serve wine and beer. Everything is made to order in this small gem of a restaurant so probably not a good place if you're in a big hurry. We found parking nearby on the street (always a challenge in Albany). Been open since November.
Will definitely go back when we're in Albany. Dinner next.
