Nestled in the middle of a side street and tucked between bustling Harbor East and Little Italy is Vino Rosina. Located in a renovated industrial space in the Bagby Building, the new restaurant is the latest place to showcase the talents of homegrown chef (and former Top Chef contender) Jesse Sandlin. The sleek, minimal interiors include light hardwood floors, exposed brick walls, leather-clad dining chairs and chic hanging lamps. A rectangular bar upfront lends a social, convivial air to the place, and an open kitchen showcases the staff’s skills. The concise menu is divided into five categories: Raw, Salad, Oven Roasted, Sides and Cheese, plus charcuterie and appetizers. (Our pick: the roasted half chicken with fresh spinach and herb butter.) There’s an extensive wine list, and a nice selection of bottled beers, too. 507 S. Exeter St., 410-528-8600
