Ammo is my favorite place to have brunch. I love eating here period. No standing in line waiting for overcooked eggs and bad service ala Dough Boys. Its way less sceney than Toast. AND I can have a nice little glass of wine at 1130am and no one judges me...
So here's what was on the wine menu last Sunday: Vinedos de Ithaca, Odysseus, Grenache Blanc, 2006 from Priorat (Spain). The winery was founded in 1999, the winemaker is young twenty-something Silvia Puig. Rumor has it she sleeps in the winery on the barrels during harvest. I love the oily texture and rich full body of this wine. Golden color and round mouthfeel with lots of apple and pear fruit - low acidity but I still really like it. It's $60 on the list by the bottle, and isn't the bartender cute???
In other news, I saw Sex and the City last night. OMG! LOVED! LOVED! LOVED IT! I laughed, I cried, it was better than Cats.
