*Editor’s note (11/2/19): Wine Enthusiast is troubled by the allegations against Anthony Cailan as reported in the New York Times. While The Usual was chosen for our 2019 100 Best Wine Restaurants list based on the overall merit of the restaurant’s wine- and food program and before any allegations were known to us, we in no way condone sexually inappropriate behavior in our industry.
“American comfort food by immigrants” is the welcome tagline at The Usual. Also comforting is the ample—and built to be paired—international wine list, which has sections for “fried chicken wine” and “burger wine” and caricatures of favorite winemakers.
Dish We Loved: 16 oz. pork chop with kimchi, honey, and sesame oil
