If you have visited Carpe Vino over the last couple of months, by all outward appearances it has been business as usual. Behind the scenes, however, the place has been upside down. We recently completed a major kitchen overhaul and made many improvements in the back of the house that have not been apparent to our customers. The fact is we have been in a constant state of cleaning up massive dust storms as project are completed. . .seemingly always just in advance of dinner service.
Well, that’s over for now and we’re focusing on finding wine and creating new menus for our beloved customers. Drew has done a great job this month, unearthing great values such as the Canoe Ridge “The Expedition” and a number of ultra-small production wines from Napa Valley: three 400-case offerings. And here’s some good news: Fistifcuffs, a sleeper of a cab from Napa, is back!
Enjoy your wines and be sure to check out the next prixe-fixe menu for later this month. It’s time to pucker up for a citrus-themed extravaganza from Chef Alexander!
