Places we're curious about

Recommended Posts

I've been as well,and the store has a well selected bunch of Italian wines.Ask Lou about Alto Adige[and their underestimated wines].


We've been drinking Alto Adige Lagrein Rosato since last spring. Pretty much our favorite rose. Does this count? You mean for once in my life I might actually be drinking something underestimated and trendy???

Thought we needed a thread on places we walk by, places we hear about, places we want feedback on without starting a thread about it (yet)...   So last night we walked by Lure Fishbar. I love the l

Walked by that newish place Turquoise on E. 81. Nice fish menu - lots of whole fish, and meditarannean stuff. Not wacky expensive, believe it or not. If they do all the fish well, might be nice. N

I went a few months ago. I liked the wings; the potato mochi are good if you don't mind the typical mochi texture. They're served with a sweetish sauce and lots of butter. The place really is small

Chambers is a very reliable place for Italian wines with age. Esp at the moment.

I agree whole heartedly, and if I want things with Barolo and Barbaresco with age that is where I buy it - I find their selection of lesser known Italian stuff to be a bit thin, in contrast to their French offerings in that realm which are fantastic. They currently get about 90% of my wine budget at the moment.

Suggestions: the wine store owned by I Trulli and right across the street from them. I haven't been there in a while, but it's a specialist Italian store. Another in that category - I can't remember the name - is the place owned by a guy related to the Il Posto Accanto people, on Clinton, left hand side heading downtown, a couple of blocks before you get to WD-50.


I don't recommend the Batali place just off Union Square. Expensive, and not many selections.


PJ Wine is worth a look too, even if it's Inwood.

And don't forget the universally underrated Sta. Magdalena red, mostly lagrein but other grapes as well.


(I knew if I didn't think about it for a while it would come to me.)


Schiava. The other grape is schiava. In fact, I think Sta. Magdalena is primarily schiava, with some lagrein to round it out.

DeVino on Clinton St. specializes in Italian (although carries excellent sake and wines from other parts of the world) - i imagine this is who Wilf meant. the owner is Italian


Yes, thanks. My vague recollection is that there's a family relationship with the Il Posto Accanto owners.
