Getting Fired Up at Timo Wine Bar

If you're a fan of bread -- golden and crusty and full of flavor -- it is a good reason to visit Timo, the new-ish wine bar in Sunnyslope, but it isn't the only one. There's the intimate atmosphere, stellar selection of wine and beer, and affordable dishes of Italian-inspired fare like these:

"Timo's fiery furnace does as good a job with specialty entrees as it does with its bread. The sizable slice of cheesy eggplant lasagna resting heavily in the middle of a chunky marinara sauce looks as if it may do you in. It doesn't. Deceptively light, it will be gone before you know it. There is a half-chicken, juicy and tender, with lemon and oregano and lightly kissed with green apple vinaigrette for a touch of sweetness. It is the same vinaigrette used in one of Timo's salad offerings and tossed with rocket greens (arugula), dried fruit, candied pecans, feta cheese, and pancetta bacon."
