Jon & Vinny’s Wine List
Most importantly, it is home to Helen Johannesen and her game changing wine shop! Helen’s Wines is micro-shop that packs a lot of punch, with an owner who is quickly becoming the face for wine here in Los Angeles. For decades, wine has unfortunately been associated with pretentiousness and elitism, and Helen dissolving that notion that one bottle at a time. And if you think just because of its address or the casualness of the food all you’ll be able to score is a bottle Prosecco or Chianti, think again. Helen gets the best allocations in town. Conjure up the best wine from any given region, and yep she’s got it... plus a ton of other producers you don’t know you about to love.
