***Update: All glasses of wine are just $5 in the month of December!***
One of my favorite little wine bars is Bacaro LA and now Barcaro's owners have opened up another wine bar called Mignon. And YES they have happy hour!!!
Mignon's happy hour is Mon-Fri 5-7pm and all day Sunday (Love!). All glasses of wine are $2 off (which will start at $6) and selected small plates for $5. You can also get 1/2 sandwich or tartines for $5 also.
“Mignon” means cute or dainty in French and this wine bar fits that description. It's a small, little place and seating is only at the bar. I like this because you can talk about the wines with the sommeliers. The only downside of it is that it might be hard to converse if you are sitting with a large party.
Our sommelier, one of the owners in fact, was very helpful when choosing our wine. He asked what we like and what we were interested in having. And since you are sitting at the bar, he pours you a taste to make sure you like it. Nice. I went with a Beaujolais and a Sangiovese.
All wines by the glass are $2 off.
And now for the food! Man, we feasted! Here's what we had:
pate de campagne
I really liked it!
Simple yet good.
The onion confit made it for me. They should bottle that up and sell it!
It was okay. Probably won't order it again though.
A tasty dish.
Salami, mortadella, and prosciutto with provolone and spicy pepper relish
w/ rouille, fennel, and orange
It was nice. The orange was a nice addition.
(1/2 sandwich is $5, but we got a full one for $10)
Here are Mignon's full menus. Anything with an asterisk (*) is $5. Click on picture to enlarge.
So the next time you are Downtown and would like a little vino or some tasty bites... head on over to Mignon. I'll be back!
