I think of Bottega, Adrien Aeschilman's small and crazily charming new restaurant in Charles North, as the kind of place you'd want your best friend to open, if your friend was as talented and gracious as Aeschilman. Bottega might make you think of Philadelphia, where there was an explosion about 10 years ago of tiny mom-and-pop BYOB restaurants, many of them about the postage-stamp size of Bottega, which seats around 20 people, tops. The boutique BYOB trend never really caught on in Baltimore, but with Bottega, you can see how a city full of diners fell in love with it. First of all, Bottega is a great-looking place, full of rusticity, like the rough-hewn tables, farmhouse chic tableware and the parti-colored wooden floor planks that Aeschilman salvaged from a West Virginia barn.
