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 restaurant’s Parker House Rolls have become a standout dish and a signature of the restaurant."

Perfect Pairing
The cured pork jowl with trout roe and Louis Michel’s Chablis from the Grenouilles grand cru is a perfect pairing.

Wine Events
Custom wine pairings are offered nightly for a six-course chef’s menu and six-course vegetarian menu.


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.
