Featured Wine
“I’m currently crazy about this deliciously aromatic expression of Nebbiolo from Lombardy: Ar.Pe.Pe. 2006 Sassella Stella Retica Riserva Valtellina Superiore, Lombardy,” says Rester.

The Wine Program
The list of around 500 labels shows off a broad range of iconic producers from around the globe. “Wines are predominately terroir-driven and food-inspired, with an eye to sustainability,” says Paula Rester, the wine director. “There’s something for every pocketbook, with 40 wines available by the glass including rare, premium or sommelier’s choice wine by using the Coravin.”

Favorite Dish
Braised oxtail in oxtail consommé with celeriac, torn Brussels sprout leaves, fried truffled polenta and Parmesan.

About the Team
Rester and Executive Chef David Bull work hand-in-hand to create unique dining experiences—including prix-fixe, three-course and seven-course tasting menus—that feature carefully curated wine pairings (including a separate vegan tasting menu).
