Really enjoyed the laid back nature, at least on the night I was in. There was some construction going on outside on the street, couldn't even hear it. Food was good, wine was good, what more can you ask for?

Bin 228 has a nice variety of tasty and affordable small plates - like crab cakes, pate, paninis and brischetta. I enjoyed the crab cake and the pulled pork panini. There were some reasonably priced local beers on tap and a nice variety of wines...More

I sometimes walk into Bin 228 by myself for happy hour and it's always a great visit. The Fig and Proscuitto panini is delicious. Just the right amount of sweet and salty. And even the pasta salad that comes as a side is delicious. I...More

Bin 228 has an odd menu. Heavy on shared appetizers, soups, salads and panini with a single special soup and entree every day. Since I had skipped lunch I was famished and ordered the halibut special. A bit pricey at $27 - everything else was...More
