Celebrating its 35th anniversary this year, this iconic restaurant somehow feels fresher than ever. Wine Director Joshua Lit came on board last May and has expanded the list to more than 1,400 selections. A new, more flexible menu structure invites more pairing opportunities.
From The Sommelier: “With each new vintage in Oregon there is even more refinement. Producers like Lingua Franca, Chapter 24, and Mimi Casteel at Hope Well continue to take Oregon Pinot Noir to another level. And outside of Pinot Noir the wines always over-deliver. One of the fun finds we had by the glass was Abacela Albarino from Umpqua Valley in Southern Oregon. The wine was Oregon sunshine in a glass!” —Josh Lit, Gotham Bar & Grill
