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 butter soup: A shellfish-based soup with emulsified Vermont butter, tiny clams, cockles and lobster is the restaurant’s don’t-miss dish."

Perfect Pairing
The butter soup paired with Pierre Peters NV Blanc de Blancs Champagne is a perfect match. The wine echoes the dish’s minerality, and its acidity lifts the flavor of the soup.

Wine Events
Wines at Menton are selected carefully from allocated artisans and small producers, and because they tend to change often, ensure unique and personalized pairings each visit.


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.
