Excellent wine selection and the owner, Jenn, was pleasant and knowledgeable about her wines. I recommend making reservations if you want to sit on their couch or table since most of their seating is at the bar. Happy hour represents a better value on her wines.

Benzina has become our favorite restaurant! The bread is made in-house and absolutely delicious! My husband’s favorite is the spicy soppressata pizza and I favor the Cauliflower. For dessert, the Affogato and the Panna Cotta are beyond scrumptious! MANGIA The service is also top-notch! We give it ten out of ten stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

About the restaurant
The Family Jones Spirit House is a distillery and tasting room featuring crafted spirits and bites. It emphasizes the relationship between distiller, chef, bartender and guest, with a focus on hospitality that makes it a gathering place where all feel at home. Nestled in the space at 3245 Osage St., The Family Jones Distillery occupies the former Mancinellis Market building two doors from Root Down. Designed and built by tres birds workshop, the space pairs industrial elements with rich wood details. The roof was lifted to add a second-floor mezzanine where distillery operations are now perched above a sunken, curvilinear, concrete bar. Guests enter the space through a large, square, wooden door made from reclaimed, on-site materials. Inside, they are met with low-slung seating, deep blue booths and soft lighting. Two-story wooden louvers flank the Osage Street glass facade, offering passive temperature and lighting control, while drawing attention to the well-lit copper still.
