Local Bites

Osteria's Pizza Margherita

• Wine Spectator listed Philly’s own Tacconelli’s (you know, the place that recommends that you call ahead to reserve your dough) as one of the leading pizza venues in the United States. Wine Spectator identified only 22 destination pizza spots, almost all of which were in California or New York. Glad Philly’s on the map. But, come on Wine Spectator, no Osteria?!

Teikoku Restaurant in Newtown Square is hosting a winemakers dinner with Abruzzi-born Gino Razzi from Penn’s Woods Winery on Tuesday June 3, 2008 at 6:30 p.m. Click here for details. Razzi’s wines have been turning heads as of late; check out Philadelphia Inquirer restaurant critic Craig LaBan’s recent write-up. Price is $95 per person (not including tax and gratuity). Razzi will be doing some interesting pours, such as a white Cabernet, a white Merlot and a 50 year old balsamic vinegar from Modena, Italy.

• Stuck at Philadelphia International Airport? Want to relax with a glass of wine? You’re in luck. Vino Volo—the stylish and highly-acclaimed wine lounge and tasting bar—just opened up a spot in the B/C Connector, the heart of the airport’s Philadelphia Marketplace Food & Shops.
