Pizza and Wine at Motorino via the Times

"Motorino is having a moment... It serves the city’s best pizza. You can find a $175 Amarone on its wine list ...To order it would be to render oneself a cartoon. Motorino is a good restaurant. It’s not that good..." Today's New York Times
Let me understand, so a lesser pizza and $175 Amarone at a top restaurant would be an o.k. pairing. Would that make one an oil painting?
Lets wave some wine ideas for moto

  1. Motorino is a disaster. I live two blocks away. Three times I've gone there during their hours of operation and every time I've been told by their "host" they weren't serving because "they were doing renovations." The doors were open, there was exactly one table occupied, and yet they refused to seat me. Once again, the Times fetishizes the banal and subpar. I will NEVER go back again.
