Day 485 : How to Save / How to Splurge Dispatch # 18

It's pretty balmy out there isn't it? I'm sure you probably want to be safely inside enjoying a nice crisp glass of Rose wine and what better place to do that at than the new-ish Tarallucci e Vino on Columbus and 83rd street where you can splurge on any number of their dozen cheeses, perhaps a small plate or two, some cured meats if that strikes your fancy and of course a glass or two of wine. What I love about the wine list at Taralucci e Vino is that they focus on smaller production wineries with a more natural approach to wine making. Also notable is that the wine list is strictly European -- Italian wines, of course! But also French, Austrian and Spanish selections. There are frugal choices and a fair share of more indulgent ones as well. On the cheese end of things, you can select from a choice of one cheese for $6, or three cheeses for $14 and five for $20 which is actually a pretty good deal when it comes to ordering cheese in a restaurant situation.

So head on over to Tarallucci e Vino and splurge in a manageable setting and have the opportunity to do plenty of people watching!
