Bern's may have the better wine list, but many of us would rather hang out at A Taste for Wine. The wrought-iron balcony offers a great view of Central Avenue in St. Pete. Inside, there's art on the walls from JJ Watts gallery, and live music on weekends: jazz, folk, flamenco, pop, etc. They also serve a great selection of microbrews and specialty beer, if wine's too fancy for you (just don't ask for a Miller Lite). An expansion in recent years has opened a new area with plenty of seating that's perfect for birthday parties or small corporate events.
