There’s no better escape from the oppressive summer heat than happy hour at Bottiglia Cucina & Enoteca at Green Valley Ranch. In the magical hours between 5 and 7 p.m. on weekdays, house wine, draft beers and well drinks are $6, as well as delectable bites such as arancini stuffed with fontina cheese, a cheese and salami board, beef Carpaccio, and zucchini flowers with lemon ricotta and aioli. The wood-roasted tomato soup, which comes with a Fontina, prosciutto and caramelized onion grilled cheese, is easily one of the best versions of the comfort food that we’ve ever had. Bottiglia’s environs—with its bright dining room and soft floral touches throughout—is so elegant and welcoming that you’ll end up staying way past happy hour, which is not a bad thing, because there’s a whole menu and wine list to explore.
