    Left Bank Is the New Breed of Seattle Wine Bar
    Before I enter Left Bank, a new wine bar and shop-before I can even see it-I am charmed. I've just crossed the South Park Bridge, over the Duwamish River, and Left Bank's name-which invokes both Paris's and Bordeaux's "left banks"-reads as both self-effacing (I just passed a tire factory) and fitting-the wine is largely old-world, with a focus on naturally produced French bottles.
