One of the city’s most luxe venues, Menton is firing on all cylinders, with a new chef de cuisine, Lucas Sousa, and owner Barbara Lynch regularly spotted. Its longevity means uncommon depth in the wine program, including many verticals and back vintages reaching their peak.
From the Sommelier: “We love to highlight classic wine regions of the world that are reborn, bringing them to our wine programs in a new way. Right now, I’m really excited about the world’s oldest viticultural area: Georgia. Ancient amphora wineries have been discovered that date back to 7,000 BC! We’re finding beautiful wines that we’re excited to introduce our guests to. I love that they are new to us, but in reality are so old and steeped in history.” —Cat Silirie, Menton
