Bar Fly: DiWine

This week Bar Fly babe Amie Barbeler stepped outside her comfort zone (and liked it)...

Recently-single life involves me living off a diet of hotdogs and vodka-based girlie drinks, so while I was intimidated at the thought of checking out some swanky-sounding new Italian wine bar, I was also excited at the prospect of eating something that wasn't wrapped in bread.

DiWine is a polished and sophisticated option for after work drinks and Italian tapas. The service is speedy and the morsels of food are perfectly presented; yet the atmosphere in the courtyard is relaxed. And when I stared blankly at the wine list, the staff were quick to explain the difference between a 2013 St Michael-Eppan Pinot Grigio ($12) and a 2012 Varvaglione Vigne e Vini Primitivo del Salento ($9.50) to me. Basically, one's red, one's white and they're both delicious.

While we swigged our wine, my date and I enjoyed the octopus carpaccio ($15) before practically inhaling the figs with prosciutto and melted Gruyere ($25).
