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…
Customers love the savory and soulful osso bucco ravioli dish.

Perfect Pairing
The veal osso bucco ravioli with Port wine reduction and Parmigiano Reggiano cheese is stunning when matched with Friulian wine, such as David Moschioni’s Pignolo.

Wine Events
The restaurant offers food demonstrations that allow customers to get involved with the preparation and tasting of different dishes alongside perfect wine pairings.


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.
