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 Hot and Hot Tomato Salad, with thick heirloom tomatoes slices tossed in basil-balsamic vinaigrette with corn, peas, fried okra and apple-smoked bacon is the signature dish."

Perfect Pairing
The Hot and Hot Tomato Salad, matched with Château Croix des Gentils’ 2010 Bordeaux Blanc from the Entre-du-Mers is a perfect pairing.

Wine Events
Tasting menus with wine pairings are always available. For larger parties, bottle pairings are encouraged.


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.
