Riot-Worthy Dish
Wine Enthusiast editors asked America's 100 Best Wine Restaurants of 2013 "which dish would start a riot if it was taken off the menu?" Their riot-worthy dish is…
"The dry-aged, Muscovy Duck for Two is a “forever” dish. Its accompaniments are always changing with the seasons."

Perfect Pairing
The Canlis salad matched with either Efeste’s 2011 Sauvignon Blanc from Columbia Valley or Silex—the ultimate Sauvignon Blanc made by Dider Dagueneau—are two perfect pairings.

Wine Events
Occasionally, restaurant guests are invited to wine- and food-pairing classes held for monthly staff trainings.


Wine Enthusiast Magazine announced the third annual issue of America's best wine-centric establishments, and to commemorate the list, WE hosted a rooftop party where we honored this year's recipients and toasted the exploding culture of wine and food.
