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 pounded tuna with foie gras and toasted baguette, chives and extra virgin olive oil is one of Le Bernardin’s signature dishes."

Perfect Pairing
Weiser-Künstler’s 2011 Trabener Gaispfad Riesling Kabinett Trocken has the acidity to complement the pounded tuna dish.

Wine Events
Le Bernardin offers different types of wine seminars, private tastings and educational 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.
