Randa Warren's restaurant wine suggestions for June.
Tucci’s Caffe Italia
Manager Ken Loncar says everything on Tucci’s menu goes great with the Sanguineti Nessun Dorma Super Tuscan red wine. It’s a blend of Sangiovese, Merlot and Syrah. It’s affordably priced, too, at $10 a glass and $40 a bottle.
1344 E. 15th St., 582-3456
Joe Momma’s Pizza
Joe Momma’s is totally cool and so is the locally produced Marshall’s beer served there. Joe Momma’s has the Sundown, Atlas IPA and Marzen on draft, all for $4.50 a glass ($3 during happy hour, which runs from 4-6 p.m. on weeknights). What’s better than pizza and beer on a hot June night? Two beers and two pizzas!
112 S. Elgin Ave., 794-6563
Manager Jake Regier adores the Levit 8 Cabernet Sauvignon from California. He says it is perfect with Charleston’s grilled steak or prime rib. It is $8 a glass and $31 a bottle. For something summery and refreshing, try the Bollini Pinot Grigio for $7 a glass and $27 a bottle.
