    Episode Recap: Bar Rescue Season 4, Ep 3

    … calling the shots. Hey guys, as an aside, I have a question. How has every show that has ever been on Bar Rescue ever not been legally shut down? Taffer recruits the help of Kate Gerwin, award-winning bartender and certified sommelier (at the age of 22, no less), and Josh Capon, acclaimed chef and restauranteur. In the kitchen, pizza is being made…

    Drinking (and grabbing a bite or two) in El Born, Barcelona.

    … a fair amount of wines from France and Italy as well as some Spanish wines lining the walls of both venues. L’anima del Vi is bigger then El Soplo, having a good sized seating area with tables for drinking the night away. El Soplo is more of a hole in the wall but very atmospheric. L’Anima del Vi has a small tapas type menus to soak up the vino and El…

    brothers in arms: le cave à michel, 75010

    … In writing about Paris restaurant openings, I'm accustomed to grousing about stillborn fads and failed trendhopping. (Meatballs, anyone? Wine by the litre?)

    reborn: vivant cave, 75010

    … presentation that foregrounded a flavoursome roast courgette. The first of many wines that evening was the most memorable for me: a keen, succulent, herbacious Viognier from young Ardechois winemaker Gregory Guillaume, who began his 3ha domaine in just 2011. The cuvée was quite aptly entitled "Lucky"; it seems providential indeed that Guillaume, in just his…

    les caves de reuilly, 75012

    … with a surprisingly omnivorous array of grandmotherly ingredients ranging from tarragon to cream to goat cheese to red pepper. I've yet to encounter any truly mindblowing rillettes de mer, but they make for a refreshing alternative in wine bars like Caves de Reuilly where the other options are run-of-the-mill cheese and charcuterie. To his credit, Le Nen…

    insiders: monsieur henri, 75003

    …I recently lauded fledgling 11ème wine bar Aux Deux Cygnes for bringing a bit of professionalism and style to its gentrification-frontier quartier. If that establishment's location is central to its charm, the same dynamic applies to another new Paris wine bar, the 9-month-old Monsieur Henri, which manages to be impressively discreet despite being…

    …-Parisian things, and visitors, for whom all things Parisian are novel. For an unintended consequence of France's imperialist adventures in Asia is that, a century and a half later, it seems plausible that Paris would contain excellent Vietnamese food. Aux Deux Cygnes, a well-appointed dollhouse of a wine bar on rue Keller opened three months ago…

    le cave chateaubriand 75011

    … Cave, a French pun* that doesn't scan in English. You have the shop's quixotic concept, which is to offer exclusively non-French natural wines. You have the fact that food is sold to-go, but no food is available for consumption on premises - not a cheese rind, not the barest sliver of charcuterie. Yet a rotating cast of the shop's exotic…
