    The Wine Front

  • Palmer, who was our host at the bar on our visit, has picked some winners for the wine list, including the crisp, flavorful '07 Di Lenardo tocai friulano, ($4 for 3 ounce portion), a' 03 Ada Nada "Valeirano" nebbiolo from Barbaresco ($8) and a 2007 nero d'Avola from Cossentino ($3), which he deems a perfect "pizza wine."
