Enotria's been on a roll of good press this week. This time, they are the only restaurant in the city of Sacramento to make OpenTable's list of Top 100 Wine Lists, reports Mark Anderson in Sac Biz Journal.
California scored 17 restaurants with most notable wine lists of the 100 best in the nation, as judged by users of OpenTable, the online restaurant reservation company.
Based on more than 5 million reviews of more than 15,000 restaurants, two local restaurants made the list, Carpe Vino in Auburn and Enotria Restaurant Winebar in Sacramento.

Negril brings jerk chicken, Caribbean eats to J Street - Jamaican food from a longtime Sacramento restaurateur is now available in Midtown, at a new spot that is replacing Luck’s BBQ on the corner of 25th and J streets. Negril, owned by Cleve Geddes, is named after a resort in Jamaica, and Geddes said his goal is to serve Jamaican food – but not quite as spicy as it’s done in the islands.

Chris Macias, Hank Shaw in "Best Food Writing 2012" - We're extremely proud to see The Bee's Chris Macias' name in the just-released collection, "Best Food Writing 2012," edited by Holly Hughes. Regular readers will remember well the story Macias wrote about Edward Martinez, now an accomplished pastry chef who, in his formative years, seemed destined for a short, violent life as a member of a notorious street gang. Published on April 18, 2012, the story recounts how delving into the world of making pastries "may have saved Martinez's life, or at least spared him a stretch in the state penitentiary." Martinez went on to culinary school. He worked hard and he had talent to spare. He went on to work as pastry chef at the excellent Hawks in Granite Bay and recently joined Enotria as pastry chef.

Dollar-Wise Gourmet: Wise Ways with Wine - The simplest way to scale back on the booze bill? Stop drinking. But for those who love a good glass of wine (or two or three), that’s not the most realistic advice.
