I had heard from a complete stranger that the new Convivio was worth a visit, though I was hesitant because of location and former failed business, Table Seven. On a day I was looking for a new wine bar, I decided to give it a whirl and I was actually pretty impressed. I really liked the interior set up. It's set up like a bunch of community tables, the lighting, everything just felt so festive and different. I really liked it a lot.
The second time I went, the crowd and lighting were different and I think I changed my mind about how much I liked it. The food was fine and the wine was good. I think I'm learning I'm not that big on Tapas restaurants. However, I still liked the atmosphere, I think it'd be a great place to do a small group dinner and can't wait to sit at one of their fun and festive community tables. I also liked their menus. It's pasted on a wine bottle! I thought that was creative and cute. This place gets a pretty big crowd.
Who is this man I'm photographed with here, you may be wondering. It's Charlie McDaniel! He's an old friend and also management here, I just discovered. He's also opening up a new restaurant with the same management here, I forget the restaurant name, caddy corner to Boheme off a Fairview.
The staff is really great, very helpful. I thought they were wonderful and they make your experience nice. They also make you feel like they want you here. That's always nice. I think this place is great for small to even large groups. Go check it out, let me know what you think!
