A friend and I met for 'small plates' & wine, and really enjoyed ourselves. ChatO sits on the corner, facing Greenlife Grocery at 2 North Shore. The restaurant has a small intimate feel, but the capacity is probably much larger than it looks, and everything is very warm & polished. There was no wait at 8 o'clock on a Friday in the bar section, so we happily took a bistro table. We ordered wine and the steak tartar, and it was the perfect backdrop for some overdue catching up.
I enjoyed the food, but thanks to my friend's advice in choosing, the wine was spectacular. The wine menu is unique in that they offer both 3oz & 6oz pours on select wines, as well as bottle service. This allows you to try more wines if you've come to taste (as we did), and creates a price range from $4 - $7 for a 3 oz pour, and from $24 to $410 for wine or what I'm sure is an exceptional bottle of Champagne. I like this setup and selection a lot, because I feel like there are choices for my pallet, and lets be honest, my wallet.
