When Jamie Kennedy downsized and sold his eponymous wine bar, its new owners (chef Scott Vivian among them) renamed it Wine Bar, retained the warm wood decor and also kept the no-reservations policy. Most of the menu remains pure Kennedy, and mostly at his standard. Still on are the fab frites and many of Kennedy's fab small plates. For his part, chef Vivian makes sweet love to scallops, dabs slow-cooked onion jam on blood-red beef tenderloin, does exquisite things with mushrooms. But they need to work on consistency – and on serving their glorious artisanal cheeses at room temp. www.9church.com
