1. Colonial Wine Bar 7166 Melrose Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90046 (Mid Wilshire)

The Colonial Wine Bar's a food-equipped history hat-tipper full of epic ephemera (colonial portraits, maps, antique book pages used as wallpaper) you probably won't remember from 7th grade Social Studies. The cuisine includes old-world favorites such as blood sausage and quails' eggs but with a twist, such as venison carpaccio with chocolate sauce. We can only imagine our forefathers feasting on this fare. (I'll bet they never had Chocolate Lava Cake and Mascarpone !)
