Featured Wine
R. López de Heredia 1976 Viña Tondonia Gran Reserva Blanco (Rioja)

The Wine Program
The beverage program seeks compelling wines from Spain (95 percent of the 400-label list is Spanish). Within those offerings, attention is focused on the great wines of Rioja, with gems on a Raro y Viejo (rare and old) list dating back to 1925. There are 40 wines by the glass, including sparkling, red, white, Sherry, Madeira, Port and sweet wines.

Favorite Dish
“We have a montadito, or open-faced sandwich, on grilled housemade country bread brushed with black truffle butter served with foie gras scrambled eggs,” says Kuller. “I would highly recommend one of these with the 2001 La Rioja Alta Gran Reserva 904 Rioja that we are pouring by the glass. The savory, creamy, earthy elements of both the wine and montadito play beautifully, while the spicy, tart fruit delicately cuts slices through the richness. Oenophiles take note.”

About the Team
Max Kuller, the wine director, helms Estadio, a contemporary Spanish restaurant, and its sister eatery, doi moi, which offers small plates in a Southeast Asian style. As a result, Kuller has an incredible knowledge of Spanish wines and ciders, as well as esoteric wines from around the world that complement spicy Asian flavors.

Corkage Policy
The restaurant charges $30 per bottle.
