FunnyJohn Posted June 5, 2005 Share Posted June 5, 2005 From the July issue of Food and Wine: "Restaurant Eve Alexandria, Virginia Best Buy 2002 Vinya L'Hereu Petit Grealo ($39) Sommelier Todd Thrasher says this Grenache from Catalonia is elegant and full of sweet blackberry flavor. Restaurant Eve is proof that you don't need to stockpile mountains of bottles to produce a great wine list—you just have to choose well. This 180-selection list stays away from big names in favor of good values, says general manager and sommelier Todd Thrasher. And that includes 20 wines priced at $35 or under. At Restaurant Eve, chef Cathal Armstrong and partner Meshelle Armstrong operate both the high-end Tasting Room and the less formal Bistro. While Tasting Room diners might enjoy Lobster Crème Brûlée, in the Bistro they can opt for a confit of pork belly with glazed onions, baby carrots and Swiss chard. For the pork, Thrasher suggests the 2001 Paul Garaudet Monthelie Le Meix Bataille ($68). "It has a hearty, rustic quality." Congratulations Todd!
