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…
"Two must-try dishes are the fusilli with red wine-braised octopus and bone marrow, and the Nova Scotia lobster with burrata and eggplant."

Perfect Pairing
The fusilli with red wine-braised octopus and bone marrow paired with Benanti’s 2002 Serra Della Contessa from Mount Etna is an ideal pairing, matching the ripe fruit and minerality of the wine with the salinity of the dish.

Wine Events
A four-course prix fixe wine-and-food pairing menu is always available.


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.
