New, 4 comments

MIDTOWN EASTWine Spectator announced today that Alto is one of the three 2008 winners of its Grand Award, the mag's "most coveted honor." From the release: "Alto joins the ranks of only 72 other restaurants worldwide to hold this lofty distinction—one that recognizes wine lists with upwards of 1500 selections that exhibit vintage depth as well as an excellent breadth of major wine growing regions." [EaterWire]

MIDTOWN— In order to celebrate the anniversary of last year's steam pipe explosion, the bar Public House is offering drinks specials including the "Car Bomb" the "Pipe Bomb" and a plate called the "Taste Bud Explosion Platter." After coming to their senses they've issued an apology, which Gothamist has in full. [Gothamist]

PARK SLOPE— Slice brings news of a new pizza place opening in the Slope: "Pizza Grill replaces whatever pizzeria was there before. I can't remember its name. The space is large and clean. Slices cost $2.25. And judging by the slice I had on Thursday, the place has potential." [Slice]

NATIONWIDE— We're not so certain these resys are so incredibly difficult to get, but for what it's worth: "In 10 key cities, including Boston, Chicago, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Miami, New Orleans, New York, Philadelphia, San Francisco, and Washington DC, American Express Cardmembers will be able to log-on and have exclusive access to special reserved tables at F&W Best New Chef restaurants. Participating restaurants include: Craft, Lucques, Spago, Vetri, Radius, Lilette, and more." {EaterWire]
