1st) Barcelona Restaurant & Wine Bar
"With nearly 350 wines (about 60 percent of which are Spanish), Barcelona is the quintessential wine and tapas bar. Forty of the wines on their list are available by the glass or bottle, and if you come on Sunday you can get a bottle for half-price. Most of their bottle prices range from $20 to $50 — but it’s possible to pop the cork of a $600 bottle if that’s your style. What does the head honcho of wine at Barcelona recommend? Gretchen Thomas says their most extravagant wine is a barrel-aged Albarino (a white varietal) from Rias Baixas, Spain. “The vintage is 2004, which is a current release, and it costs $104 on our menu. It’s a very rich, opulent style of white wine, only for very serious wine-drinkers, particularly those that like aged whites,"" Thomas says. ""Not the most expensive wine, but certainly one of the most extravagant."" "
