There is no traditional sign out front, look for the red door on the corner and the side mural panels by local artist Tony Fitzpatrick. Formerly Duchamp, formerly Meritage, and probably something else before that.

Small inside with a large patio, wonder what this place is like in the winter. A host stand up front with a bar on the right, framed Fitzpatrick prints line the walls, along with weathered wood planks around the room. Less upscale than Bristol up the street, but somewhat pricey still. Atmosphere was ok, though we awkwardly stood around waiting for the hostess while the place was empty.

No taps, pretty good size bottle list, but sort of random. We sat on the patio and had a few small plates with a Leipziger Gose ($9). Their list is available online with highlights from Jolly Pumpkin, Perennial, Founders, FFF, and more. $5-$30 range.

Service at the table was gracious and prompt. Food was good, though we didn't try any entrees. Gnocchi, grilled shishito peppers, and bacon wrapped artichokes were pretty good, gnocchi being the standout. Overall worth a look for an eclectic bottle list, but not really a regular hangout with Map Room nearby.
