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 seared diver scallops and foie gras, served with wild mushrooms, braised artichoke and cider vinegar gastrique is a standout dish."

Perfect Pairing
A light red wine with low acidity and tannins like a Barbara d’ Alba from Piedmont pairs beautifully with the scallops and foie gras.

Wine Events
Seasonal green market menus feature limited-production wines paired with the seasons’ best flavors.


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.
