We sat at the bar counter & we seemed to be the only people who went to the deli counter to pick a platter, instead of ordering from the menu for dinner.
Jian did mention that the Tete De Moine was about half the price at Huber's but the pitiful thing is that they close early... like at around 7pm or so.
Our platter of lamb proscuito, comte & Tete De Moine.
A peep at the minced squid.
Just wanted you to have a look at the pepper without the squid ink all over the shop.
Washed down with this Soto De Torres Ibericos Crianza 2008 Tempranillo rioja. MMmMMMmmm...
They charge$15 corkage per bottle of wine you open. They also have housepour wines by the glass if your date does not drink (boring).
Also, you add $5 for making a platter.
The total bill came up to mid $80s.
We trotted over to Jones the Grocer afters, just for a walk before heading back, & found the selection of antipasto to be more extensive & there were more cheeses too (but no Tete De Moine). It's a bit pricier there, though, for the cheese & wines. Jian said that he'd go back to Epicurious anyday, rather than come back to Culina again, for the prices. I would just probably pester him to get be some Tete De Moine from Huber's before they close for the day. :P
