Stock up on your holiday wines now at 3rd Corner Ocean Beach, Encinitas and Palm Desert now because they're closed Thanksgiving Day. Yummy with turkey: Pinot Noir (Oregon), Beaujolais (France), Merlot (Washington State). Delicious with ham: Albarino (Spain), French Rose (Provence), Belgium Beer
Rooting tooting with pumpkin pie: Vin Santo (Italy), Late Harvest Tanet (Uruguay), 20 Year Tawny Port.
Joy to the world with delectable new menus, an inviting facelift (Encinitas), an affordable wine shop brimming with enophile gifts/gift certificates and seasonal martinis (Chai Pumpkin, Spiced Caramel Apple, infused fig vodka) and affordable wine by the glass menu.
Enjoy grilled mahi with yellow curry, duck confit with white bean cassoulet and a cheese plate perfect for late night dining. Sunday brunch with unlimited mimosas and happy hour (3-6) may be naughty, but it's nice to indulge during this busy season.
