Is it a wine bar, or a restaurant? Actually, Monopole is a little of both. Located not far from Elizabeth Bay, this upscale eatery features a menu that's heavy on charcuterie — all made in-house — imported cheese from as far away as France, Italy, and the Netherlands, and other worldly dishes that are expertly conceived and plated with care. And then there's the wine. Over 500 rare and boutique bottles, including over 30 by the glass or carafe. So whether you're hungry or just thirsty, there's plenty of reason to stop by.
