Best of 2011: The Lambs Club, Cuisine at the Crossroads of the World

What was once home to America’s first professional theater club, this glamorous New York City dining destination makes you feel like you're on the red carpet.

Celebrated Food Network Chef Geoffrey Zakarian imbues this lavish bar and grill with the midcentury glamour of the original Lambs Club, a gathering spot for Broadway royalty. Cocktails are cooled with hand-carved ice, and the wine list focuses on hallmark bottles from America and France.

Destination Bottles:

Viuex Chateau Certan 1986 (Pomerol)
Ronchi di Cialla 1997 Schioppettino (Colli Orientali Friuli-Venezia)
Jacques Prieur 1996 Corton-Charlemagne

The focus of the wine program is to represent the world’s diversity of styles while still keying in on French and American hallmarks and regions— wines that are truly representative of their sense of place.

The Lambs Club is located in a landmarked Stanford White Building that was home to America’s first professional theater club, The Lambs. Members included Fred Astaire, Charlie Chaplin, Milton Berle and Irving Berlin. The building underwent a $100 million renovation by renowned architect Thierry Despont.
