  • Episode Recap: Bar Rescue Season 4, Ep 3

    … night’s episode of Bar Rescue was kind of painful for me to watch, although “Shmuck Dynasty” might be my favorite word play ever. Rhythm & Brews is a live-music joint owned by two identical twins and their effusive and ambiguously homeless third brother. The problem? The bar is in Staten Island. Just kidding! Beyond the usual melange…

  • 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?) But newly opened Place Sainte Marthe wine bar La Cave à Michel floors me, for it's perhaps the first place I've encountered since Bistro Bellet last fall that seems genuinely forward-thinking…

  • The 21 Best Wine Bars in the Country

    … September 23, 2014 0 comments Articles & Reviews, By Jonathan Cristaldi Fifty years ago if you’d asked for a glass of Malbec, you’d probably be greeted with a long, awkward silence. Today, there are over 8,000 wineries in the US, and even more bars that are pouring out such a vast, global selection of wines that America recently surpassed…

  • reborn: vivant cave, 75010

    …-Pierre Jancou wine bar Vivant Cave seems unusually significant. Forstorp previously cooked in Paris at Café Smorgas, Aux Deux Amis, Bones, and Nuba, and has made friends everywhere along the way. He's a chef's chef, with a frank plating style and fondness for smoked salt. Vivant Cave, for its part, was poised to become yet another pretty ex-Jancou…

  • les caves de reuilly, 75012

    …-vine Aligoté whose rear label, I noted, is somewhat misleadingly worded. Naudin-Ferrand cites the years the vines were planted in the various plots that make up the cuvée - but while it's plausible that the Aligoté vines from 1902, 1953, and 1936 are still in production, I'd be very surprised if Le Clou's 1034 vines were yielding much at all…

  • 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…

  • aux deux cygnes paris 75011

    …-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

    …, Le 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…

  • A Night at City Winery Chicago

    … I was excited to see another wine bar hit the Chicago wine scene. I've been to City Winery for drinks and tastings, but never had the opportunity to have dinner. I'm kicking myself for not being on Twitter fast enough to learn that Prince was performing a late night show at City Winery a few weeks back. That's an interesting perk of the space…

  • Wine Wand – WOW!

    … Wine Wand – WOW! Yet again, it has been a while since my last post…can’t say it has been writers block anymore. I have so much to say… My infatuation with tasting wine hasn’t waned and I was recently in touch with a new friend, Jeff over at Vini Wine Bar in Davis, CA. He is one of the great ones in this business, making wine accesible to all…
