The Cask Kosher Wine Shop At 8616 Pico Blvd 90035

I don’t drink alcohol so I’ve never had occasion to step inside The Cask on Pico Blvd. I did tonight, however, for a Torah class by Rabbi Shlomo Einhorn, and I just love the place. They served free hotdogs and drinks. The bar had walls of what looked like Jerusalem stone. Most importantly, the shop had a friendly heimish vibe. I just liked the people running the place. I liked the crowd it attracted. I liked how everything was laid out.

I don’t know anything about wine or pricing or selection, but the place has been in business for more than three years now, so they must be doing things right. I’ve never heard a complaint about the place and the Jews I know love to grumble.
