    1. I went for my birthday last week with 10 of us and it was awesome! It was hot since it was about 95+ outside and there was no air or windows open but we looked beyond that and had a really great time!
      The food was great, I do wish there had been more entree options, but nobody left hungry. The cheese were awesome and the pig candy rocked!
      I would totally go back, no, I mean I will totally go back!

      1. I was there about a week ago and had the Zweigelt wine flight. Amazing! I had never heard of this red wine grape, but the wines were some of the best I have ever had (and I've had a lot of wine) so i'm going to hunt down a few bottles for home. Anybody know where to find this wine?

        Also had the pig candy (too good) and the salumi plate (it's from Armando Batali up in Seattle) and a great selection of cheeses.

        The address is 724 N.Vine, near Melrose.

        1. OK. I'll ask: What's pig candy?

          1. When I went I couldn't complain about the salumi from Armando Batali--waiting desperately for Mario to open his restaurant so I can hopefully get some of his again (testa!).

            Also the cheese selection and accompaniments were very good. (Mostly American cheeses).

            But the pig candy? I had higher hopes than some dried up bacon in maple syrup or whatever that was. Sweet bacon. Fine in principle (brilliant in principle?) but maybe use some better bacon, something special.
