One of the most inventive and original establishments in the county (and now expanded to Virginia), Iron Bridge melds wine shop, bar, gourmet small plates and coffee lounge into one. It's a great place to relax and spend some time, but it can get crowded and busy, too. The wide selection of small plates and the few entrees are fun and usually very good. The staff knows their wine, too, and help with the appealing atmosphere.
