Small, cute Cure has a beautiful meat slicer and lots of cured meats to go with it, as well as other snacks like cheeses, a mortadella and pecorino sandwich, and maybe tuna-and-caper-stuffed Calabria cherry peppers. Then there's cocktails, a nice little wine list (maybe a Chateau Bas rose, a grüner veltliner, a Barbera, more, $7 to $9 a glass), a nine-seat bar, and a few tables. The windows (lots of them) look out onto the tennis courts at Cal Anderson Park, and it's very satisfying to sit and drink wine on a nice summer evening while watching other people play basketball, tennis, bike polo, and/or adult dodgeball. Cure’s motto: Vinum remedium est. One caveat: The quality is high, and your bill might be, too; it's not hard to spend $35 on a couple drinks and snacks per person, then still feel like you need some dinner. Hint: Try the soup and that mortadella sandwich.
