Restaurant Review: Flagstaff, Arizona

FLG Terroir

Late last year, Fred Wojtkielewicz transformed local downtown favorite The Wine Lo into FLG Terroir, a conversation-friendly wine lover’s retreat. The space is warm and expansive, with stone-cut tile, an exposed beam ceiling and an open kitchen. The wine list, which centers around boutique wines from Europe and California, including unusual finds such as Rare Wine Co. Madeiras and Cetonze Frappato along with a few local options, is on full view along the walls. Pull a bottle from the shelf and you can drink it on site for a mere $5 corkage fee. The small plates encourage lingering, with wine-oriented bites like Sherry-braised oxtail over polenta, or a roasted vegetable tamale, not to mention oysters shipped in fresh daily.
