Trova Wine + Market
This charming spot is worth a visit for the charcuterie, cheese, and wine (for dine in or to-go), but the chef also prepares small plates that pair beautifully with wines curated by the market’s brilliant sommelier. Order this to go: the arancini: three fried orbs of creamy risotto with molten mozzarella centers and a crispy panko crust, served with a creamy tomato sauce that’s aerated for a lighter texture. The Bacon-Jam Toast is an addictive meld of salty-smoky chopped bacon and sweet caramelized onions atop toasted artisan bread; a snowy dusting of Parm-like Mimolette and aged Cottonwood River Cheddar cheeses adds to the delicious decadence. Pro tip: You can bring your own serving board or platter and have the kitchen artfully arrange a takeout charcuterie and cheese order. If you dine in, there’s a small sidewalk seating area and a generous wine happy hour Monday through Thursday.
