Best of 2011: Gautreau’s (New Orleans, LA)

Patrick Singley’s “jewel box” French bistro boasts trompe l’oeil hand-painted walls and antique mirrors from France. The house still retains one feature from the building’s previous life as a drug store: Wines and liquors are displayed in apothecary cases.

Destination Bottles:

PharaohMoans 2005 Syrah (Paso Robles)
Château Margaux 1989 Margaux
Château Miraval 2009 Pink Floyd Rosé (Côtes de Provence)

The wine list, like the food menus, is not static. The emphasis is on small-production, interesting wines that complement the cuisine.
