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, 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. Hint: Try the soup and that mortadella sandwich.
