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…
"Daniel’s don’t-miss dish is the duo of Wagyu beef: braised short ribs and roasted tenderloin."

Perfect Pairing
“Our Duo of Beef, a braised short rib with roasted Wagyu tenderloin, is beautifully flattered by a spicy and savory Rhône Syrah, such as J.L. Chave’s Saint-Joseph,” says Raj Vaidya, head sommelier.

Wine Events
Customized pairings with tasting menus are a highlight of dining at Daniel, which also offers themed wine dinners in a private room to expose guests to new appellations.


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.
