Venue Info

Balzac screams date night. A smattering of small tables and chairs provides plenty of areas for cozying up, and an extensive wine list pairs nicely with intimate conversation ("so... what do you like besides being on Tinder?"). The wine -- from too many vintners and vintages to count -- is what brings people in, and the small plate menu makes sure they stay. Flat breads, charcuterie, cheese plates, crab cakes, and the amazing duck nachos are perfect for sharing.
