Big names like Sommelier-turned-Partner Pascaline Lepeltier and Chef Paul Liebrandt (who took a turn at these stoves) have taken residence at Arnaud Tronche's wine bistro-a-vin, which cuts an elegant figure with a marble bar and floral ensembles. Throw in low lighting and a tony address—and you have quite the operation. The service can be off at times, which is a shame because Racines NY has an ace, even affordable, wine list that bears discussion. As for the food, you'll pay for all that sexy ambience a little more than the cuisine currently merits. Yet, the "Flavors of Summer" with eggplant, peas and morels makes for a pretty bite, while Berkshire pork with grilled prawns is a hearty delight. A chocolate confection with sesame tuile is a deal sealed.
