Where to buy punt e mes

jgg13 Feb 11, 2009 02:26 PM

I could have sworn I'd seen it at Charles St Liquors, but apparently not as they had no idea what I was talking about after I couldn't find it. Where can I find it in the city (preferably along the red line)? I'm guessing Brix would be a likely candidate (and since it'd be far more convenient for me, does the one over on Broad St have the same selections as the south end one?)

    The liquor store next to the Whole Foods in Alewife has been known to stock it.

      Not on the red line, but Wine and Cheese Cask has it ($19)

        That actually isn't too far out of my daily routine (and thanks to chickendhansak - actually the gf recommended the river st WFM as having a lot of vermouths as well), I'll have to check them all out.

        I believe that Liquor World in the Shaw's Shopping center at Porter Square T is stocking it (or trying to at least.)

        It's an easy on/off the red line so it's worth checking out.

          I get over that way w/ some regularity, will check it out. That store always manages to surprise me w/ their selections.

            Great! After talking with one of the employee's I know they work hard on it :-)

          I buy it at Marty's, corner of Comm Ave & Harvard Ave in Allston on the Green (B) line.

            Martignetti's in Brighton has it as well. If I remember correctly, they're a coupla buck cheaper than most places

            I'd call and check before quoting me on that one.

            Brix on Broad definitely has it.

              I know its out of the way but Kappys on Route 1 (Revere Saugus line) has it for $16. Also Cirace in the North End should have it.

              Thanks all, there's all kinds of options now :)

                So I finally got a chance to go to Liquor World in Porter and they did have it. It was weird though, I only spotted 3 bottles, which were scattered around various portions of the top shelf (which itself seemed to generally be a jumble of random stuff). I had asked a friend who lives there to look for me, and there's no way he'd have found it w/o asking.
