58 Degrees, the SequelLast week, a scaled-down 58 Degrees and Holding Co. opened at St. Philip's Plaza (4280 N. Campbell Ave., No. 27) in the former Adobe Wine Deli. Nicolas Mills, who previously was the sommelier at the Ventana Room, is the new manager; 529-2020. We also heard a wild rumor yet to be confirmed that 58 Degrees is considering turning the former Ovens Restaurant into a chic lounge and wine bar.

Gourmet Hanukkah TakeoutWe have never been able to master the fine art of latke (potato pancake); this year, Feast Tasteful Takeout can do the honors. The caveat is you must pre-order the food by Dec. 20, and then can pick it up on Dec. 24. Hanukkah starts Dec. 25. Choices include latkes, brisket with root vegetable tsimmes, noodle kugel with raisins and more. Call 326-9363 for specifics and to order.
