Wine and Beverage Director Jeff Bareilles takes particular pride in pairing wines with the restaurant’s many vegetarian offerings.

“About three years ago, I was at Love Apple Farm walking through the garden with Cynthia Sandberg [the farmer]. As we meandered through the planted beds, she would pick an herb or vegetable and hand me a bit to taste and comment on its flavor. I sensed this was the way she walked through the garden when she was by herself. After about 24 different tastes, I said, ‘I wish we could make cocktails with some of these ingredients.’ A light went on for both of us." —Jeff Bareilles
