Copia Urban Winery
(1122 Washington Avenue; 314-241-9463)

Even after a 2007 fire left it closed for more than two years, Copia occupies a huge space in the downtown loft district. "Urban Winery" is not much of an exaggeration -- the outdoor patio seats 100 diners and can be enjoyed in these wintry days through the magic of a retractable roof. The menu is broad, from the requisite calamari appetizer to duck breast in a reduction of its natural juices with candied dates and green peppercorns. But about the wine: Copia has a modest corkage fee ($8), and prices are retail instead of the usual restaurant markup. Few wines are available by the glass, but you might as well finish that bottle, anyway.
