The Moore Brothers Wine Co., long known in this region for its offerings of European artisan wines at reasonable prices, just received top Zagat billing for its one-year-old New York store. Moore Brothers' newest wine emporium, located in a townhouse bordering Gramercy Park in Manhattan, took top honors in the Zagat 2008 New York City Gourmet Shopping & Entertainment Guide in the categories of "Best Wine Shop," "Best Service" (in all categories), and "Best Buys. " It also tied two other non-wine shops, as one of the three stores that provide the "Best Overall Shopping Experience in New York.

* WHITNEY. 8 tonight, NBC 10.   WHITNEY CUMMINGS talks as fast as the TV characters she writes for. And when she talks about Philadelphia, the 29-year-old University of Pennsylvania grad talks even faster. When I tracked down the creator and star of NBC's "Whitney" (and co-creator of CBS' "Two Broke Girls") at an NBC party in Pasadena, Calif., last month, she immediately tried to put down what was apparently the first food she'd had time for all day when she realized she was talking to someone from Philly.

Ready your palates, Pennsylvania-bound oenophiles. Coming soon to Rittenhouse Square, it's the state's first wine boutique. Say what? Indeed, a wine boutique. From the folks at the state Liquor Control Board, purveyors of Ernest and Julio Gallo by the jug, here comes the latest offering to give Pennsylvanians a sense of wine-buying parity with their neighbors in New Jersey. The wine store, which the LCB hopes to open before Thanksgiving, is going on the ground floor of 215 S. 18th St., facing Rittenhouse Square.

Shopping on the Web is a $13 billion activity, but some things sell more easily on line than others. Books and music are obvious choices for e-selling because one retailer's copy of "Beowulf" is as good as another's. Wine would seem to be another perfect Web store commodity. Storage issues aside, who needs to see her bottle of Silver Oak Cabernet before she buys it? The guy in the wine shop won't let you try it on first, so your purchase is just as blind as it would be on the Web. But wine-buying on line is still pretty much in its infancy.

The temporary tattoo on her shin was chipping, but the brunette was otherwise perfectly turned out for a night on the town - canvas pedal pushers and clingy lilac top. She was swirling the wine in her glass and eying the tall pale man with hair the color of a ripe olive. He, in turn was completely absorbed by the shapely curves of a bottle of Chaddsford Viognier. The brunette stalled for time, then bought her bottle of Proprietor's Red and headed out into an unseasonably cool July night.

The lure of the country proved too much for Todd Dickel and his wife, Suzanne. After 15 years of raising children and working at the family's oil and real estate business, the Dickels fled the fast pace of Long Island to settle in Lancaster County. "I wore shiny pants and sat behind a desk all day," he said. "Here I work in the fields and wear holes in my jeans. " "Here" is Lancaster County Winery Ltd., a wine-making operation with about 10 acres of grape vineyards on a 60-acre farm seven miles south of Lancaster.

The Italian Market mystery is solved. For six months, the question on Ninth Street was: What was Sal doing behind those boarded windows? Sal Auriemma, co-owner of the family cheese shop, Claudio's, had bought the building next door and was renovating it behind closed doors. But Auriemma deflected all the questions. So everyone wondered. But now they know. Now everyone knows. The new store is finally open and the answer is obvious: Sal was getting his fresh mozzarella-making machine ready.

The new playground opening in Ardmore this weekend is a far cry from the traditional swings, slide and seesaw. Recreation Station on Greenfield Avenue is a 10,000-square-foot indoor playground and fitness center for children age 2 to 12. Half the space is filled by an enormous rubber and plastic complex that includes moonwalks, ball baths, cargo nets for climbing and trapeze apparatuses, all enclosed and connected by yards of slides and crawl...

Jose Garces is applying for a liquor license for Garces Trading Company at 1111 Locust St. But why does he want one, since the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board operates a wine boutique inside the place - much to the consternation of some rival restaurateurs, who sued the LCB over the arrangement? Garces is not a party to the suit, pending in Common Pleas Court. Garces has not commented, but people close to him say he does not want to open a bar at Garces Trading. Perhaps it's a preemptive move, in case a court forces the LCB to close the wine shop, or he simply wants to serve cocktails from a service bar. The LCB seems pleased with sales.

On tens of thousands of computer screens around the world, wine expert Gary Vaynerchuk sits with a fine Riesling and - a bowl of Cap'n Crunch. He's dealing with that burning question: Which wine pairs best with breakfast cereal? And he has the answer. Vaynerchuk's story is a story of this very moment. The Springfield, N.J., wine retailer's book, Crush It! , published last week, is the first in a 10-book deal, signed for a reported seven figures. His is an immigrant's story, a social media story, an Internet success story.

It could end up being a case of sour grapes for some Philadelphia restaurateurs. A small but vocal group, mostly of Center City restaurant owners, is organizing against a Liquor Control Board plan to open wine boutiques in gourmet groceries. Among other concerns, those in the group worry that the proposal will siphon off customers and give the high-end food shops - selected by the LCB - an unfair advantage. "I feel like the state is trying to sell houses when they make tractor-trailers.

That glistening pinot grigio you enjoyed at last summer's beach parties may, come Halloween, taste thin and inconsequential, particularly with cool-weather meals. Similarly, light and fruity reds and ros?s can wilt like sunflowers, yielding to sturdier cousins like cabernet sauvignon, zinfandel, nebbiolo and shiraz. Food and wine pairings in autumn are challenging because the possibilities are endless, above all with reds. There are two paths you can take: by country, or by grape varieties.

For years, the state liquor stores in Pennsylvania have struggled with an image problem: poor selection, high prices. Wine lovers have had a particularly rough time of it: poorer selection, higher prices. But Liquor Control Board officials say they are out to change all that. Yesterday, at the official opening of a wine-and-spirits superstore at 1218 Chestnut St., they made the point over and over again. "The best days of the Liquor Control Board are ahead of us," enthused Jonathan H. Newman, one of three board members.

In a way, corks are what made fine wine possible. Before mass-produced bottles and corks, wine that traveled any great distance from its winery went in barrels. Barrels let in a small amount of air, so spoilage began as soon as the wine left the winery. The consumer who couldn't buy her own barrel went to the wine shop with a pail or pitcher. In England, at least, she would have several grades to choose from, but not much selection at any single price level. Her wine would begin to go sour immediately.

The menu for Ian Millstein's recent birthday party in Voorhees would have excited even a jaded gourmet. Ian's Italian-born maternal grandmother, Mary Maruca, made brisket with portobello mushrooms and dried cranberries, scalloped potatoes with goat cheese, and spiced pumpkin bread. Ian's mother, Rose Maruca, set out a generous array of room-temperature appetizers, followed by big-flavored vegetarian entrees: penne in a tomato sauce laced with home-grown habanero peppers; an exotic Ethiopian green lentil salad dressed with a lime-ginger-Dijon vinaigrette; and a roasted zucchini and cheese torta that featured plum tomatoes peeled and canned by Mary Maruca, and fresh basil from her garden in Turnersville.
