Neumanali does everything right: tiny menu, impeccably prepared California cuisine, height-of-the-season ingredients. Its big-city food is served with small-town friendliness the bartender does card tricks, the owner tells ghost stories, and everyone wants to talk to you. And since it doubles as a wine bar and shop, the restaurant has assembled a short, interesting wine list whose near-retail prices will inspire the good kind of sticker shock.
