Waiting room now wine bar "Zavino's sophisticated sister" is how Greg Dodge bills the new Tredici Enoteca (114 S. 13th St., 267-928-2092) on the southwest corner of 13th and Sansom Streets in Midtown Village. The wine bar was initially developed as a waiting room for the original Zavino, his pizza/wine bar across the street. But the concept evolved. Chef Carlos Aparicio's Italian-inspired small- and medium-plate menu (no pizza) is built on sharing. Even wine - and the list is studded with premiums - is available in smaller pours.

Ever since the bagel shop closed many years ago, this tiny boutique of a space just south of Rittenhouse Square has struggled to find an enduring tenant. How about the small-plate appeal of Venetian cichetti and a wine bar? Former gondolier Andrea Luca Rossi, also a veteran of Girasole and numerous Boston restaurants, is giving the concept from his native town a try - and I like the early vibe. Out with the fussy white leather couches and marble of the old Italian wine bar. In with more rustic woods and casual buzz of the small-plate cantina.

WHEN I walked into Paris Wine Bar, the newly opened adjunct to London Grill at 23rd and Fairmount, it was as if I'd walked into a wine bar in another, parallel dimension. You see, Paris Wine Bar is a wine bar that serves no wines from France, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Germany, Argentina, Chile or even California, Oregon or Washington state. "All of our wines are from Pennsylvania," Cristina Tessaro, the bar manager, informed me. I looked around for hidden cameras to make sure I wasn't being punked.

Want to learn about wine really quickly? Everybody will tell you that the learning is in the tasting: If you want to know about wine, you have to taste it. The deeper secret is that if you want to learn quickly, you have to taste pairs, trios or whole groups of wines together. (In the wine world, a group of wines tasted together is called a "flight. ") When you taste wines side by side, you notice the differences between them, the small features that separate one from another. Your wine savvy goes up enormously any time you do comparison tasting, but you'll make the best progress if the wines are closely related to each other.

Chef Roberta Adamo, one of many Philadelphia-based proponents of cooking with fresh, seasonal foods from local sources, will lead "Shop, Cook and Dine" classes on Nov. 7, 14, 21 and 28 at Penne Restaurant and Wine Bar in the Hilton Inn at Penn, 3600 Sansom Street.

On returning to her pasta lab, the chef will give step-by-step instructions for preparing the meal.

Catelli Ristorante enjoyed an almost-17-year run in the Main Street Complex in Voorhees before the swish Italian destination closed in July 2011. Times had changed. Owners Jan Talamo, Linda Rosanio, and chef Lou Imbesi went back to the drawing board and came up with Catelli Duo , an industrial-chic osteria/wine bar tucked into Voorhees Town Center (12101 Town Center Blvd., 856-751-6069). The menu allows dining at a variety of price points. Imbesi says patrons will be asked if they want "social" (smaller)

It happens to almost everyone. You look up from an interesting project or conversation only to discover that time has flown and most restaurants have stopped serving lunch for the day. Ah, but with Restaurant Taquet near at hand, there's no need to miss the meal. Because hours at the Wayne restaurant's wine bar run nonstop from opening to closing, diners here have a chance to enjoy Taquet's extraordinary food all afternoon. That's good news for late lunchers as well as for those who'd like dinner before an early-evening appointment.

The new year has brought two significant newcomers: one in Center City, the other in Montgomery County. The Mainland Inn (17 Mainland Rd., Harleysville, 484-704-2600) is actually old, but new owners have restored it, top to bottom. Few chefs are taking local sourcing and organics to heart as Ezra Duker does. He has an advantage, because the inn's owners have the nearby Quarry Hill Farm, whose specialty is heritage-breed pasture-raised meats and heirloom crops. Duker also had a tough time finding good kitchen workers, which partly explains the delay in the property's reopening.

Hello there For a few months, they had lived just across the street from each other. Yet they didn't meet until Christina's friend persuaded her and Tyson's friend persuaded him to attend their Fairmount neighborhood's 2011 block party. They talked that day, and more at house parties over the next couple of months. "Tyson started asking me to go on walks," Christina remembered. Christina, who grew up in Doylestown, is a physical therapist who now works in clinical research at Thomas Jefferson University.

When a dog came into Monica L'Tainen's life, the two of them agreed: It was time to move. She had been pining for her own patch of green, and after rescuing her pup, Bodhi, Center City loft living just wasn't providing enough country-style respite for either of them. One night, as she was sitting with friends in Chestnut Hill, having drinks around a fire pit, L'Tainen said, she had an epiphany and observed, " 'Everyone is happy here.' Someone in the group replied, 'Yes, because we all live out here!

New eatery in Wayne Radnor Township is getting an upgrade - what with White Dog Cafe's reopening after a fire, Peppercorn's recent debut, and the forthcoming Estia Taverna and Pietro's Coal-Oven Pizza coming to 200 Radnor-Chester Rd. in a few months. A week old is Carmel Cafe & Wine Bar (372 W. Lancaster Ave., Wayne, 484-580-6725), a dramatic transformation of HogFish Bar & Grill and its predecessor, Flavor. It's dark and sexy in a chain sort of way, which is about right because Carmel has five locations in Florida.

Dave Magrogan will expand his empire further. He is taking over what briefly was Square Peg at 10th and Walnut Streets; he is not sure yet of the new concept - only that it will open "later in the year. " He also is preparing to take over Firecreek , the steak house in a 200-year-old refurbished paper mill on the banks of the Brandywine in Downingtown. Its last day is likely early next week around June 17, according to management. Magrogan (Doc Magrogan's, Kildare's, Harvest Seasonal Grill & Wine Bar)

IT'S no accident that Lady fell hard for the Tramp over a shared plate of linguine in the classic Disney movie. The very act of nibbling pour deux can be enough to get a body in the mood for romance. Although Valentine's Day is one reason to canoodle with your favorite dining partner, chefs around town are hip to the aphrodisiac power of shared deliciousness any time of year. "It's sexy to share," said Patrice Rames, chef/owner at Bistro St. Tropez in Center City. He offers a dessert duo meant for two, an airy Gran Marnier souffle and a chocolat chaud , or molten chocolate cake (see recipe)
