A warm and sexy Russian Hill drinkery

From a husband/wife duo that met at Rye (and a third-wheel buddy from ASU -- get your own girl!), this soft-opened Russian Hill drinkery ups what was once a dark, wood-box-beamed dive, adding deep red walls (adorned with the obligatory black sheep painting) and a faux leather-paneled bar with a glass-like black top, behind which they're stocking 25 bottled global-ish beers, 17 wines by the glass/bottle, and small plates/paninis like a reuben with horseradish sauerkraut, Russian dressing, and Swiss, which lives to neutralize the Russian and the 'Kraut.
