Step through this buffed metal doorway to find an oenophile’s fantasy where Zalto stemware is stacked high and each polished glass is ready to be filled by one of the 200 selections brilliantly curated by Le Bernardin’s super-star sommelier, Aldo Sohm. Over 40 wines on the list are offered by the glass.
A tailored crowd sits and sips—perhaps on an oversized U-shaped sofa, at a comfy counter or at one of a handful of tall tables. The scene is luxe but also comfortable, featuring crystal fixtures and a stylish array of bric-a-brac stacked high to the soaring ceiling. Tapas-sized snacks are designed for sharing with wine consumption in mind and include a plate of cheeses, charcuterie, harissa-roasted carrots or chicken drumstick prepared coq au vin-style.- MICHELIN guide inspectors
