Village Voice's Description

Whether acquired cold from a panel truck at a rural corner, or hot from a village macelleria, porchetta is Italy's favorite sandwich meat. Though duplicating this fennel-stuffed roast with the copper crackling skin in this country is patently impossible, 'Inoteca has made a noble stab at it. Their sometime special of herb-stuffed and well-fatted porchetta, piled on an elongated roll and sided with grated cheese, pickled onions, and parsley, is as good as we're going to get here.

    we sat at the communal table because the place was just packed. the other people had wine and cheese that looked amazing. our dishes were composed of interesting and different flavor combos- salty/sweet, crispy/soft. our waiter was helpful and knowledgeable. it was a little loud, but with a small group, or if you sit outside, it shouldn't be a problem. go. you won't regret it.

Tips from foursquare

  • Gilt City on 08/17/11

    With over 600 selections, varietals from every wine-making region in Italy, and numerous older vintages rarely seen on these shores, the wine list is simply astonishing.

    Check out 'inoteca. a lot of ppl have been talking about it (most recently Nate who suggested it as a date spot). why have I not been? or have I?

  • Metromix on 08/05/10

    This wine bar is simple without the frills. Come for delicious Italian style plates and bottles of rare wines without the worry of other chichi customers.

  • A great white option from the Piemonte region. Check out the arneis grape from the sub-denomination of Roero. Unique, great acidity, stone fruit, and mineral. Very flexible. agwine.com

    Try the Truffled Egg Toast and spot it on Foodspotting!
