Located in Ballard, Portalis Wine Shop and Bar is frequented by Seattle’s most discerning food and wine aficionados, especially right after the nearby open market closes at 3 p.m. on Sundays. Although most of the shop's space is devoted to rows of wine bottles (more than 500 varietals are available), Portalis does have a bar off to the side and its brick walls include for-sale works by local artists. Take a seat in one of the bar's dark-wood chairs, and enjoy the daily tasting of mostly Pacific Northwest and California varietals. A menu of small plates is available and includes traditional charcuterie and cheese spreads alongside to-be-shared short ribs, house-made pasta, Manila clams, and desserts.
