L.A. Times Backs The Wrong Small-Plated Wine Restaurant

Here’s a rib-cracker: Today L.A. Times’ Calendar section declares Vintage Enoteca wine bar “hot,” and conversely, labels AOC “not.” Survey says: No, not even, and hell-to-the-never. Enoteca has excellent wines, but on a culinary level, that platoon of panini and flatbreads doesn’t come close to the strokes of genius graced by James Beard-winning Suzanne Goin. Surely, they must jest. It’s nearly enough to make us question whether “Bieber glasses” aren’t actually much better than “Timberlake glasses” (yeah, we don’t know what they’re talking about either). However, a single Mila Kunis is better than watching her date Macaulay Culkin, so we’ll give ‘em that one. [L.A. Times]
