This is a relatively new restaurant that recently started servicng lunch (opened only for dinner earlier). They have a nice but not extensive menu. Sandwiches, burgers and pasta type of stuff. Food is good, ambiance and service are excellent.

Nice wine bar, but it closes early on a Saturday night. We showed up at 10 pm and could only get a quick glass of wine. I thought it would be nice to have an appetizer--no luck.

Two 40 South houses a 32-wine enomatic system, along with glasses of wine poured straight from the barrel and a specialty martini bar. The food is "farm to table Californian" with a menu starring share plates and brick-oven artisan pizzas. The space features a communal onyx table, an outdoor "living room" with couches, a dining room with an open kitchen and a trio of semi-private cabanas, an outdoor dining area, and a private party room with state of the art AV equipment. A wine vault houses wine racks, personal wine lockers, and a special enomatic system for eight "high-end" wines, which include 2008 Screaming Eagle, 2007 Harlan Estate, 2008 Scarecrow, and an 1862 Madeira. These wines are all available by the taste. Two 40 South also sells wine at retail price, wine accessories, olive oils, and aged balsamic vinegars in a retail area.
