Some might gripe that the wine selection is fairly simple, but Kitchen Door is not Martini House. This is supposed to be a place you can visit any night of the week, every week. A place for Tuesday night wine, not $75 Napa cabs. In my opinion, the list has a remarkable range of food-friendly varietals: Vermentino, Riesling, Grüner Veltliner, Arneis, Grenache Blanc, and Viognier, in addition to the usual big three whites; Tempranillo, Grenache, Petite Sirah, Sangiovese, as well as the obvious reds. And, the most expensive bottle is $42. That works just fine for me....
Kitchen Door is planning to be open for lunch and dinner every day of the week starting June 14th. I can't wait to go back... but I think it's safe to say the place will be mobbed. And deservedly so.
