Vinoteca Farfalla is a Nice Place
I forget about Los Feliz, but turns out it's still there. Did a little Hillhurst pub crawl a while back, which started at Vinoteca Farfalla. This tiny box of a wine bar was super crowded, but if you can get yourself a table, you can be cozy within the bustle. It's a nice vibe. And they have the kind of staff that will engage you in a conversation about wine, if you're into that kind of thing (and not wine-timid like me), and will also tell you if your cheese selection is boring (which is to say, they are not cheese-timid. Nor am I). They also have a full menu with a subtle Brazilian bent amidst predominantly Italian offerings.
Vinoteca Farfalla is at 1968 Hillhurst Av., between Los Feliz Boulevard and Franklin Avenue
