With the craze of wine in this city, savvy restaurants offering thoughtful, rationally priced wine lists are thriving. Greedy places jack up prices, but the best restaurants remain reasonable. Seven 17 South, a relative newcomer to the South Howard restaurant scene, is answering this call. They've assembled an impressive array of more than 90 wines by the glass, ranging from $5 for a crisp, New Zealand Nobilo Sauvignon Blanc to a $9 Spanish Faustino Rioja. Seven 17 South offers something for everyone: wine geeks hunting the latest and greatest or casual drinkers hunkering down with their favorite Cabernet. Food's good too. For a measly 20 bucks, you can get a couple glasses and a gourmet pizza.
