Cello's wine list looks a bit limited but I'm liking the prices for the bottles. Have you tried their 07 Filippo Gallino? It's their only Barbera.
Also, anyone ever been to Casellula? It has good reviews and the wine menu is extensive. Slightly more expensive, though.
I'd prefer a nice, cozy ambience, though, which Cello seems to have.
haven't had the Barbera, but their wines are nicely selected, and this is far more important than having an extensive collection to choose from. The fact that the Barbera has 6 years of age on it is interesting, and you may be able to sense the age. On the white side, the verdicchio they have is really nice.
Manton and i stopped there a year or two ago, and they had a simple Cotes du Rhone with a little age that was just awesome. And yes, it's full of cozy and comfy.
Will try it if I'm ever back in that neck of the woods. Used to live around there, but don't think that ever caught my eye.
once every few months, I'll get street-meat. today was that day.
Chicken and rice?
I had street-falafel today. Was good, but even the average falafel stands in NYC are better.
Did he charge you extra for his mayonnaise?
it was complimentary
Great atmosphere there.
and they have Wiemer by the glass.
On the bus about to get into port authority and I'm simply amazed at how every restaurant we drive by seems to be packed. I mean, I guess it being Friday night has something to do with it.
But still, where are all the shitty restaurants that go out of business? It seems like most restaurants here are well capitalized and backed with strong proofs of concept or something so as to minimize the chances of failure.
Anyway, wine soon!
the NYC restaurant biz is a fickle bitch.
