Wine%20Opener.jpgAt a recent highfalutin industry wine dinner at Quince, Restaurant Girl Speaks recounts what happened to the owner of Terroir Wine Bar, Dagan Ministero, when he found himself wine opener-less at meal's end: "Conversation froze as Ministero removed his shoe and placed the base of the bottle inside, repeatedly slammed the shoe against the brick wall of Quince's private dining room and began to sweat a bit as the cork inched out millimeter by millimeter. Weak applause followed the pouring of the (possibly bottle-shocked?) pinot." The sommelier's Laguiole was rendered useless by the display. [Restaurant Girl Speaks]
