America's Best Wine Bars

America's best wine bars: Bar Covell

Alen Lin

Bar Covell, Los Angeles

 Improvised wallpaper (pages from old encyclopedias) and no official wine menu reflect the laid-back vibe of this Hollywood Boulevard joint. Wines by the glass change daily; recent crowd-pleasers included a zesty, sparkling Malbec from the highlands of Mendoza, Argentina. Despite its minuscule kitchen, the bar churns out a respectable range of dishes including a croque monsieur topped with a nutmeg-flavored béchamel.

Great Match: Jalapeño mac-and-cheese and a glass of 2010 Christian Venier “Les Carteries” Cheverny Blanc (France), $21 total.
