I'm spoilt rotten here in the U.S., not only from the local selections, as I live in East Harlem, where most of the mexican restaurants are staffed by exp
  4. I think the place being referred to is actually Tarallucci e Vino, on the NW corner of 10th St. and First Ave. They are the distributors for Danesi, and rumor has it they're opening another place somewhere around Union Square. They make a pretty good espresso, and good pastries/panini too.
