Best Wine List for Mortals - 2007
If you know almost nothing about wine, can't speak French and couldn't care less about growing region, age, legs, microclimatology or varietals but still don't want to make a fool out of yourself by accidentally ordering the French equivalent of a bottle of Mad Dog to go with your cassoulet, Z Cuisine has the solution. On the wall near the bar is a chalkboard that lists the wine of the day. It's never terribly expensive, usually interesting in some way you probably won't understand, and can be ordered simply by pointing -- which you should do with a certain attitude of world-weary ?lan. Z Cuisine's vin de la maison offers an easy, eminently drinkable choice that saves you from having to peruse the list and pretend you know what you're looking at.
