Happy Wine and Gourmet is more wine shop than anything else (and the bottle and case prices are among the lowest), but it's also part wine bar, where you can sit down and enjoy your wine with tapas and sandwiches at tables made from casks, crates, and a door-size plank of wood propped up by barrels at each end. Most patrons pluck a bottle from the shelves and shell out a $5 corkage fee. The sandwiches here feature fresh baguettes with a choice of seven fillings, including ham, turkey, prosciutto, and grilled chicken. A dish of olive oil-and-garlic-marinated white anchovy fillets (boquerones) stands out, the slender fish delicately delicious, the leftover oil an absorbing sop for rounds of baguette. A passable paella is also available, though many folks seem to opt for chorizo y queso, a plate of spicy sausage and cubes of imported Swiss cheese.
