Good food, excellent wine prices. I had Spaghetti Bolognese and my wife had a hangar steak. The steak was good. The Bolognese was excellent. Big chunks of tender, braised meat, the way it's supposed to be. No ground beef.
We drank a 2003 Chianti Selvanella from Cantina Mellini. Good Sangiovese flavor - sour cherry, some leather, some wet earth. Nice acidity, easily complementing the tomato in the sauce. Some ripe tannin that adds, rather than detracts, from the enjoyment. Wine price was $48 for a wine that we sell at retail for $28 - an incredibly low markup for a NY restaurant.
