Style Magazine Mention08-Dec-2008
The tiny waterfront part of Ann Street just off Thames in the heart of Fells Point has always had a certain European air about it. The onetime home to the old Captain Steve’s China Seas Marine Trading Co., and currently to the decidedly European Bonaparte Breads, has now added a new storefront to the collection. V-NO is a petite wine shop/wine bar/cafe owned by friendly husband-and-wife team Mark and Kristina Bachman. The stylish shop offers a well-edited selection of wines, mostly under $30, and grouped according to style. A smaller “cellar room” holds pricier bottles. For those who pull up to the small bar, 15 to 16 wines are poured by the glass daily, and a concise menu of cheeses, breads, salads, savory tarts and chocolates is offered. Open Tuesday-Wednesday at 4:30 p.m.; open Thursday-Sunday at 11:30 a.m. 905 S. Ann St., 410-342-8466.
