So this will be #4.5 in TC Comedy and Wine "take a walk on the wine side" wine bar series. This one takes you east into the wilds of St. Paul. Brace yourself westsiders, this little wine bar is worth the journey across the river. Scusi's wine bar (attached to the restaurant) has a small but impressive wine list. One of the most notable features of Scusi's wine bar is the unique wine storage system that allows them to offer a wide selection of wines by the quartino (quarter liter) and mezzo (half liter) that normally would only be sold by the bottle. So go ahead, try a quartino of Il Poggione Rosso di Montalcino "Baby Brunello" instead of having to buy a whole bottle. They also are one of the few restaurants in the twin cities to have wines in kegs and we're not talking cheap box wines. Here's the wine list in case you'd like to look for yourself: http://scusistpaul.com/menu-wine.html .
For those who come hungry for dinner, the full menu is available in the bar. Lots of nibbles available as well as pizzas and full portion meals. Here's a link to their current menu, but because it changes seasonally it may change by April: http://scusistpaul.com/menu-dinner.html
We'll meet Friday after work. I will be there by 5:30pm but you can come later (or earlier). I've reserved a table for 15 and it's such a small place you'll be sure to see us as soon as you walk in.
