Best New Live Music Spot (2009)
There’s nothing like a little vino to get people dancing and at 12 Grapes, soon after the drinks are poured, the live bands start up. “I want people to think of this as a house party more so than a restaurant,” says co-owner Rich Credidio. It doesn’t matter what kind of music you like, either, since the musical offerings are as varied as the wine list. When you work up an appetite, you can nibble on lobster dumplings with Thai dipping sauce, roasted tomato flatbread pizza, or their most popular dessert, banana rum bread pudding.
