Belly Wine Bar

This place is basically how I want to eat forever, until I remember that I'm supposed to eat vegetables.
Belly's by the glass wine list features a couple of really nice orange wines on the menu - both mellow ones and more aggressive options (Denavolo Dinavolino and La Stoppa Ageno, for example).

Charcuterie:
Crepinette du veau was outstanding, having been wrapped in caul fat, I would hope for nothing less.
Our rabbit rillete was a close second in terms of deliciousness, but perhaps I just love shredded rabbit.
Pork & parsley terrine was the only dissapointment - they had plated it by cutting it up into chunks, but really it was just a bit bland.

Salumi:
lamb mortadella - my DC was obsessed with it. i loved the pistachios
cured duck breast with balsamic - awesomely fatty

Cheese:
Two types, named "blue" and "earth" on the menu. I missed the names, but appreciated the honey dipper as an accoutrement along with ubiquitous fig jam and toast.
