Best Place to Take a Wine Geek Phoenix 2009 - Caffe Boa
Caffe Boa is an unexpected delight amid the college-town bustle of Mill Avenue. It's a stylish bistro with a grown-up atmosphere, a Mediterranean-inspired menu that celebrates seasonal, organic ingredients, and a serious attitude about wine. Owners Jay and Christine Wisniewski, both certified sommeliers, have created a Wine Spectator Award-winning program that features a few dozen wines by the glass, intriguing flights, and a huge selection of bottles from around the world, including a number of biodynamic and organic wines. Just as impressive, many of the staffers at Caffe Boa have passed an introductory sommelier certification program, so their recommendations are substantial. It's a refreshing alternative to the beer-chugging coed scene in these parts. Cheers!
