Ernesto's Wine Bar is a homage to author Ernest Hemingway. Do not think that I am very much impressed by that as a restaurant concept, but the author means a lot to Ernesto's owners. And the motif certainly is an improvement over the generic "tapas" bar.Visit the RFT restaurant page late tomorrow afternoon or check back here Wednesday morning to see what I think.
Ernesto's opened late last year in Benton Park. It is a clean and pleasant café. It is well lighted. The light is very good and soon, with spring, there will be the shadows of the leaves. The sound system plays a mix of 1980s and 1990s pop. You do not want music. Certainly you do not want music.
