Another dinner with friends

Tonight a dinner with other new friends, also courtesy of an event at Pasanella & Son, this time in Brooklyn, and in a building I've admired since we moved here no less, which followed a stroll through the Botanical Garden. Bread and cheese began, with a crisp, minerally, and herbaceous Greek white from Santorini which tasted, appropriately, like a Greek island (chalk and oregano.) Then a dry Austrian riesling was a perfect match with a marinated calamari salad, and then the Barolo Marasco I bought the other night at the tasting sang pretty well with some yummy steaks grilled with peppers and portobellos and asparagus on the side.
