Discover Exceptional Italian Wines

Cradled by the Adige River and the Italian Alps, Salorno is an exceptional microclimate of unparalleled richness. The presence of the Alps protects the region from the cold winds originating in the North and the Mediterranean influence coming off Garda Lake in the South grant conditions ripe for cultivating extraordinary wine varietals.

Salorno has been the converging point of cultures from the North and South since the 18th century. Tolloy’s modern philosophy is borne out of this region’s dynamic history. The international taste profile of Tolloy’s single varietal wines is the ideal backdrop to showcase the singular characteristics that this microclimate lends to its wines. Tolloy’s wines can be enjoyed on their own or with International cuisine.

Tolloy Pinot Grigio Dolomiti IGT

This Pinot Grigio is cultivated at the foot of the Italian Dolomites, where this noble varietal has been grown for centuries. A rich microclimate, hand selection of the grapes and careful vinification grant this wine a unique complexity.

Color: Straw yellow
Bouqet: Intense and ample; transitions from nuances of pear, white peach and melon to delicate floral notes of magnolia.
Flavor: Delicate vein of minerality and brilliant freshness

CELEBRATES HER NEW CD FROM TELARC JAZZ

“AT LAST”

WITH TWO WEEKS OF CONCERTS AT DIZZY’S CLUB COCA-COLA AT JAZZ AT LINCOLN CENTER, 2/17-3/1

AND A FREE IN-STORE PERFORMANCE AND SIGNING AT BARNES & NOBLE, 2/16

ANN HAMPTON CALLAWAY, the platinum-selling singer and songwriter, will celebrate the release of her new CD AT LAST with two weeks of concerts at Dizzy’s Club Coca Cola (60th Street and Broadway) from February 17 to March 1. She will be joined by Ted Rosenthal on piano, Jay Leonhart on bass and Victor Lewis on drums. Shows are at 7:30 PM and 9:30 PM. Please call (212) 258-9595 for tickets or visit jalc.org.

On Monday, February 16 at 6:00 PM, join Ann at Barnes & Noble Lincoln Center (1972 Broadway at 66th Street) for their Cool Mondays Jazz series. She will perform a few selections from the new recording and sign CDs.

AT LAST is a mix of jazz standards, versatile pop songs and a couple original tunes, each woven together to create a narrative that is perhaps as cinematic as it is musical. It’s an album-as-art-form approach that is rapidly disappearing in the burgeoning digital age,” says Callaway. “I always think of CDs like movies,” she says. “You wouldn’t download one scene from a movie. You want the whole thing, the whole story. An album shouldn’t be just a bunch of songs in a sequence that’s front-loaded with hits. It’s really about creating an emotional journey that starts in one place and ends in a place that’s very different.”

Move Over Ramen, Hot Pots Are Here

Move Over Ramen, Hot Pots Are Here

oysters-jpg

Whether you’re tired of maxing out your sodium intake, avoiding excessive carbs, or simply ready to move on to the next dish du jour, Sushi Zen’s Chef Toshio Suzuki will be happy to teach you a thing or two about hot pots, the intensely flavorful and guilt-free Japanese soups that remain a secret here in the city.

Like ramen, hot pots differ from region to region when eaten in Japan, but certain qualities always remain: a typical hot pot has a kombu- or soy-based broth, to which the chef adds a variety of proteins and vegetables that add flavor and substance to the dish. Some varieties are flavored with beef or pork; others use crawfish or shrimp. Our favorite blends the seasonal monkfish meat and liver—which Suzuki lovingly calls the “foie gras of the sea”—with tofu, seasonal vegetables, mushrooms and roe.

Review By Nancy Walman

The space that previously housed a haute French restaurant (La Fourchette), an upmarket wine-bar-cum-restaurant (a branch of the successful Merchants NY) and Aïgo, which featured pan-Mediterranean cuisine, has now found its true calling. Now five years old, One83 gets our vote as one of the best classic Italian restaurants on the Upper East Side, with prices a notch below its competitors. Its four owners are responsible for some of Manhattan’s most solid Italian restaurants and the remake of Delmonico’s. Service is far more polished than one encounters in this class of restaurant. From the front of the house, to waiters and busboys, everyone seems to be doing something — and — doing it well.

Housed in a colorful space that evokes the true spirit of Italy, One83 has a warm and inviting interior with an array of midnight and sky blues, and copper and golden hues. The 65-seat dining room is complemented by light woods and multi-level suede squares that line the ceiling and are the color of the deep blue Mediterranean sky. The restaurant also offers al fresco dining in a lovely garden blooming with fresh greens and flowers.

Such appetizers as imported prosciutto, asparagus and the finest mozzarella available will delight you, as will a fritto misto of fried calamari, shrimp, cod and zucchini in a zesty tomato sauce. All pasta dishes can be ordered in half portions. Standouts include homemade linguini with fresh clams, Italian bacon, chilies and white wine and fettuccine with baby sweet peas and an aromatic meat sauce.

Entrees, often a letdown at NY Italian restaurants, excel at One83. You’ll love wild king salmon, encrusted with herbs in a lemon-chardonnay sauce and “long bone” veal chop in Barolo wine sauce. Remy Djelosevic, the charming restaurant manager and captain, will select the perfect bottle and there are fine wines by the glass starting at $10 as well as an excellent bar. Service is polished and personal.

Desserts are light and refreshing or sinfully rich. Whatever you choose, be sure to include the mixed berries in a cold Zabaglione sauce and the especially memorable Italian cheesecake. Wonderful coffee and biscotti are lovely conclusions. ONE83, 1608 First Ave., between 83rd & 84th St., is an island of civility, a personal favorite and rates A Major on The Walman Report.

Delicatessen Makes Changes

Delicatessen Steps Back, Re-evaluates, and Makes Changes
10% Food Discount for Previews Offered Through Friday, February 13, 2009

Bustling since opening its doors in July 2008, Delicatessen has attracted a loyal following.

To preview these changes, a 10% discount for 10 days only will be offered on all food now through February 13th.

“It became clear that we needed to make some changes to the menu and overall operation if we were going to achieve our goal of being a great neighborhood restaurant with enough edge to appeal to destination diners,” says owner Mark Amadei.
