The owners of Oakland's deservedly ultra-popular Italian restaurant Dopo are opening a wine bar/small plates place called Adesso (in Italian, dopo
= after, adesso
= now) a couple of blocks down Piedmont Avenue in the new Il Piemonte complex at the corner of Hidden Valley Road. According to a since-removed Craigslist help-wanted ad picked up by Eater SF last month, they're planning to open in February.
Speaking of Dopo, since getting its full liquor license, it's been offering one of the largest selections of amari (Italian after-dinner drinks) I've ever seen in this country. The list includes hard-to-find bottles such as Ciociaro, Luxardo, Meletti, and Nardini.
