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 classic Oysters and Pearls is a sabayon of pearl tapioca with Island Creek oysters and white sturgeon caviar."

Perfect Pairing
Lobster, beets and leeks with Jean-Louis Chave’s 2008 white Hermitage is an ideal pairing, with a depth of flavor and weight to the lobster that matches the body of the wine.

Wine Events
As the tasting menu changes daily, custom wine pairings are offered based on the menu and the guests’ preferences.


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.
