Discover Faccia Brutta and Bar Pallino

CURATED BY JODIE BATTLES

WINE DIRECTOR FACCIA BRUTTA & BAR PALLINO

 

*Deliveries start August 10th*

At Faccia Brutta, the wine possibilities seem endless. The lists of crudo and pasta already have our mouths watering. And the dark, cozy vibes at Bar Pallino have got us one foot out the door. Award-winning chefs and restaurateurs Ken Oringer and Jamie Bissonnette have created an alluring combo between their newest spaces on Newbury Street. 

This month we spoke with Beverage Director and Upper Glass alum, Jodie Battles, who also oversees the programs at Coppa, Toro, and Little Donkey. The wine list and menu at Faccia Brutta embody all things coastal Italian, think Porto or Capri. Bar Pallino was inspired by Ken’s love of Parisian wine bars. There you’ll find wines from smaller producers who operate just off the beaten path. We can’t wait to dangle our feet at the bar and sip on something fabulous. Hope to see you there!
