Featured Wine
“We’ve been big supporters of Louis-Antoine Luyt, a true game changer in Chile,” says Sherman. “He’s young and from Burgundy, and has managed to find incredible, old-vine vineyards down in an area mostly known for large-production and commercial wines. He makes a Pais from vines that date over 350 years old, as well as one of the most vibrant and amazing Carignans I’ve found.”

The Wine Program
The program offers 195 selections, with 12 wines available by the glass. Small producers from the world’s top-winemaking regions are the focus, and the wines are carefully sourced to provide exceptional quality while maintaining value, with about 90% of the list under $100.

“Our food menu requires a certain amount of faith from our guests, since who really knows what pig face and duck tongues taste like?” says Aaron Sherman, the sommelier. “So it gives our team an opportunity to discuss cool and interesting wines from all around the globe.”

Favorite Dish
Wine lovers should not miss out on the goat, and groups should spring for the goat leg. “Anywhere from 6–12 pounds, depending on the size of the goat, the leg is ridiculously tender, succulent and unbelievably flavorful,” says Sherman. “The meat is so soft it literally shreds with a fork. I love to pair this with big, bold wines like Elisabetta Foradori’s Granato Teroldego or Blackbird Vineyards’ Arise from Napa Valley.”

Corkage Policy
It’s $25 per bottle, with a limit of two bottles per table, which can’t be on the list.
