Tel: 212 614 0473's insider take:

First there was 'ino, a tiny, charming West Village panini bar (21 Bedford St.; 212-989-5769; Then there was 'inoteca, a newer, larger, equally charming crosstown sibling with huge windows, wooden tables, and shelves stocked with well-priced Italian wines. It was so successful, it spawned yet another outpost on 3rd Avenue and 24th Street. Order a carafe of Sicilian red and enjoy a plate of eggplant lasagna, fried shrimp wrapped in pancetta, or a voluptuous grilled sandwich of chocolate Nutella spread on firm white bread. Hangover sufferers swear by the breakfast panino of scrambled eggs, mortadella, and basil pesto.
