Part of our 40 finest things happening on the North Shore food scene right now.
Terra & Vine has an interesting wine list and well-trained staff, so don't be shy: Ask lots of questions.

Convito Cafe & Market With a not-to-be-beaten selection of Italian wines (and the cuisine to go with those bottles), Wine Director Rick Kean is committed to introducing new varietals to diners. Look for wine dinners and other winecentric events to start up again this fall. 1515 Sheridan Road, Wilmette

The Stained Glass Where was the first place you had a wine flight? For many of us, the answer is The Stained Glass, with its fancifully named The Cab-Tastics and Chardonnays of Our Lives. Not to be forgotten is the white tablecloth atmosphere and wine-friendly cuisine. 1735 Benson Ave., Evanston

Ten Mile House An early and enthusiastic supporter of local breweries like Temperance Beer Co., Sketchbook Brewing Co. and Half Acre, this is the place to ask your server what’s new and what’s local, and try a glass or two. 1700 Central St., Evanston

Terra & Vine With Master Sommelier Alpana Singh curating the wine list, you know you’re going to find a new treasure. It’s the perfect place to sit on the patio, order some small plates and try a bottle from Southern Italy or the Piedmont region. 1701 Maple Ave., Evanston

Tudor Wine Bar Pre- or post-performance at Writers Theatre, Tudor Wine Bar is conveniently positioned (across the street) for conversation, a glass of wine and a nibble. It also has a selection of digestifs like Fernet-Branca and Amaro Nonino, which are perfect evening-enders. 338 Tudor Court, Glencoe

Whiskey Thief Tavern With an interesting mixologist-crafted cocktail list and, of course, an extensive list of bourbons, ryes and whiskeys—some available in flights—this is the place to come to try out a new spirit. 616 Davis St., Evanston
