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 Alaskan Niçoise with salmon confit is a must-try dish."

Perfect Pairing
One perfect pairing at crush is the house-cured prosciutto crudo with fresh persimmon and wasabi goat cheese, paired with Geil’s 2010 Scheurebe Kabinett from Rheinhessen.

Wine Events
The restaurant offers classes taught by certified staff members that range from general “Wine 101” seminars to more in-depth regional or varietal-specific wine classes.


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.
