Otto, NYC

I met a friend recently at Otto Enoteca Pizzeria, located on 8th Street,  one of  Mario Batali and Joe Bastianich’s places this one is on the corner of 8th and Fifth Avenue (entrance on 8th), as it was a perfect place for a quick drink and snack. Otto is modeled after an Italian train station,

Not surprisingly the Sauvignon Blanc ($10) 2010 Fruili they offered was a Bastianich one. It was clean, crisp and worked well for afternoon drinking with a pizza. My friend enjoyed a Stoudt’s APA draft ($7). We had just planned to have a drink – but smelling the aroma of the pizza’s intrigued us – and we order one pizza —  a cracker-thin crust topped with proscuitto & arugula over a fresh tomato sauce; no cheese ($14).

I’d go back for more!
