Passion was the forte of choreographer Martha Graham (1894– 1991). And passion is at the very heart of “Clytemnestra” (right), her no-holds-barred account of what the mythological Greek queen did for love. A segment from the 1958 ballet unleashes its fury during the Martha Graham Dance Company’s season at the Joyce Theater. |, thru Feb. 26

THEATER NEWS by Francis Lewis

Dating in NYC Finding that special someone in the Big Apple is no easy matter. And when you do, where do you go on a date? In “Significant Other,” which begins previews on Broadway on Valentine’s Day, the ideal date for New Yorker Jordan Berman, the twentysomething main character, may be a documentary about the Franco-Prussian War, but Gideon Glick, who stars as Jordan (below, with Barbara Barrie as his grandmother), has other ideas. The Garden Court at The Frick Collection is “transporting,” he says. The McKittrick Hotel, with its live shows, fine dining and electric music, is “sexy.” As to the play Glick is in: “See it, and you and your date will laugh, cry, hold each other and, out of fear of loneliness, stay together forever.” | “Significant Other,” Booth Theatre, 222 W. 45th St., 212.239.6200

Strike Out

And the Winner Is …

What’s the connection between “Cagney” (above), the Off-Broadway musical about screen legend James Cagney, and the 2017 Oscars on Feb. 26? Seventyfive years ago, Cagney, as song-and-dance man George M. Cohan in “Yankee Doodle Dandy,” won the 1942 Oscar for Best Actor. Robert Creighton (above, center), who embodies Cagney onstage, is a winner, too, having tapped his way to the 2016 Fred Astaire Award for Best Male Dancer in an Off-Broadway Show. | “Cagney,” Westside Theatre Upstairs, 407 W. 43rd St., 212.239.6200




As Monica Piper (below) relates in her onewoman, autobiographical Off-Broadway comedy, “Not That Jewish,” her girlhood crush on New York Yankee Mickey Mantle almost became an affair when she introduced herself to The Mick in the St. Regis bar. She was 40 and in a black sheath; he was past his prime and primed with alcohol. He asked her to join him for drinks. “Oh my God, is Mickey Mantle hitting on me?” she wondered. But then second thoughts kicked in. “He’s probably drunk, and it could end ugly, destroying a childhood memory I held dear. As I walked away, I could feel his eyes on [me]. And I thought, ‘Wow, Mickey Mantle couldn’t get to first base.’” | “Not That Jewish,” New World Stages, Stage 4, 340 W. 50th St., 212.239.6200

Room for Dessert

The word “cheesecake macarons” should be enough to draw anyone to Michelin-starred Gabriel Kreuther’s new namesake chocolate shop across from Bryant Park. But these colorful, tangy sweets (in flavors like mixed berry, matcha and hazelnut) are just the start of the gourmet treats on offer at Kreuther Handcrafted Chocolate. A case displays bananas Foster and Concord grape yogurt bonbons, Ceylon cinnamon and herb-coconut chocolates, pistachiorosemary pralines and dozens of other glistening sweets like prized gemstones.

Your New Best Friend

Britain-based jewelry brand Monica Vinader forges a bond with America at its first U.S. store, and it comes complete with a signature line of friendship bracelets (above). These aren’t the threaded ones you made at camp, but pieces made of rose-gold metallica and sterling silver, with casual cords. You can personalize the cuff with complimentary same-day engraving at the SoHo boutique, which also has other shiny baubles, like this stack of Siren rings (right). 151 Spring St., 646.230.8655

night spots


Get Stung

Sinless Sip Countless fitness studios and the proliferation of athleisure wear: Yes, wellness has become big in NYC. But even the most disciplined soul needs a night out. Enter The Wild Son, a shabby-chic eatery in the Meatpacking District, focusing on vegetable-forward fare. The cozy bar’s low-alcohol drinks offer lighter cocktails—great

for food pairing—but still pack plenty for the senses (the hickory aroma of the Old Medicine’s smoked tawny port is addictive), minus the workout-killing hangover. | 53 Little W. 12th St., 212.727.7900

E’s Bar

The neon lights prominently displayed at E’s Bar scream “dive bar,” but step inside, and you’ll see exactly what this friendly Upper West Side spot is all about: unpretentious fun, where crowds of twenty- and thirtysomethings party at communal tables, walls are plastered with classic rock band decals and groups gather around lively games of Jenga in back booths. Take note of the food, too, which is surprisingly tasty. I was skeptical when my server, Marc, said, “The guacamole will ruin you for any other place.” But after one taste of the spicy, limey green goodness, I swallowed my doubt (as well as the entire bowl). | 511 Amsterdam Ave., 212.877.0961




When it comes to cocktail bars near Times Square, The Stinger is the bee’s knees. The latest offering from James Beard Award-winning chef Todd English delivers shareable bites (like mini-lobster rolls, avocado toast and truffled mac ‘n’ cheese), refreshing cocktails and a sophisticated atmosphere. The bee theme goes deep here: Honey, made in hives on the roof of the InterContinental hotel, is a signature ingredient in many items, like the Bee Good (pictured), a take on the gimlet that substitutes housemade honey wine for traditional lime juice. Not to worry, though, the bar’s classic cocktails will leave you just as buzzed. | 300 W. 44th St., 212.803.4545







Love, Actually Love has mesmerized artists from Rembrandt to Robert Indiana. When better than the month of St. Valentine to examine the many facets of romance on view around town? (1) In “Considering Love,” a show of romantically themed 20th-century works on paper, John Sloan’s “Love on the Roof” (1914) boasts Ashcan School realism (a married woman embraces a younger man amid erotically fluttering laundry) and a backstory (the etching appeared in a 1934 trial as an example of “immorality in art”). Sloan defended his subject, writing, “I just saw it and etched it.” Kraushaar Galleries, 15 E. 71st St., 212.288.2558, Feb. 2-March 2 (2) The luminous paintings of Abstract Expressionist Emily Mason display deeply affecting qualities of intensity and warmth. Consider “Late Edition” (2016). Ameringer McEnery Yohe, 525 W. 22nd St., 212.445.0051, thru Feb. 11



(3) Before selfies, there was “The Ballad of Sexual Dependency.” In her riveting autobiographical slide show, Nan Goldin photographs friends, lovers and herself in achingly intimate images of love and loss like “The Hug” (1980). The Museum of Modern Art, 11 W. 53rd St., 212.708.9400, thru Feb. 12 (4) The embodiment of 1960s romanticism, a hand-painted evening dress by Karl Lagerfeld for Chloé (1967) channels Art Nouveau master Aubrey Beardsley in “Paris Refashioned, 1957–1968.” The Museum at FIT, Seventh Ave., at W. 27th St., 212.217.4558, Feb. 10-April 15 (5) A favorite style of film actresses for decades, these “Night Clubbing Earrings” (ca. 1950s) are encrusted with diamonds and mabe pearls from Curaçao jewelers Spritzer and Fuhrmann.

g Aootin h S Star Josh Groban Tackles Broadway in “Natasha, Pierre & the Great Comet of 1812.”


Josh Groban as Pierre in “Natasha, Pierre & the Great Comet of 1812.”



about joining this show on Broadway, because a lot of the cast has done the show together for so many years. I didn’t want to just waltz in as a new dad to this existing family. I wanted to make sure I could start from scratch like they did, so I did extra work with Rachel and Dave, and special rehearsals even when I was touring. And the cast has been so welcoming—maybe because so many of us are making our Broadway debuts. We’re all so excited to go on every night.


A lot has been made of the fact that your body is padded, you have a beard; in short, that you don’t look like “Josh Groban.” I liked the idea that I wasn’t going to look like I would offstage. First, I didn’t want to feel like me being in the show was stunt casting; the costume makes it feel more organic. And I didn’t want people to be distracted by my presence. If they’re thinking, “Hey, I saw that guy on PBS,” then they’re not thinking about the story. I especially like the padding—as I call it “the junk in the trunk”—because it helps the way I move as Pierre. It accentuates the fact that the other characters think of him as a bull in a china shop. People respect him because of his money and power; they don’t view him as a threat. But once he gets angry, especially after he drinks too much, anything can happen.

AT 35, Josh Groban has accomplished more than most other Generation Xers. He has sold over 30 million CDs and DVDs, had his own PBS special, starred onstage in London (in a concert version of “Chess” opposite Idina Menzel), dated famous actresses (including January Jones and Kat Dennings), dueted with Barbra Streisand, performed for President Barack Obama and was named one of People magazine’s “Most Beautiful People.” But the Los Angeles native has now done something he has always wanted to do: Broadway. In the new musical, “Natasha, Pierre & the Great Comet of 1812,” at the Imperial Theatre, he plays the unhappily married Russian aristocrat Pierre, who longs for the much-younger Natasha (played by Denée Benton). He talks about why he chose this show, what he loves about NYC and more. Why did you choose to make your Broadway bow in this show? There have been offers for other shows, and roles that I knew I would enjoy playing, but I was waiting for something truly special. I saw this show when it played at Kazino [a makeshift theater in a tent, at the time, in the Meatpacking District], and it really stuck with me, in part because I love the music Pierre sings. I knew it would be a challenge: Pierre is not someone people would expect me to play. I liked the idea of taking such a big risk. The show is based on 70 pages of Leo Tolstoy’s “War and Peace.” Have you read the whole book? I’ve read up to page 900, which is well beyond the 70 pages the show covers. I wanted to get a sense how Tolstoy told the story of Natasha, Pierre and Anatole. Plus, it helps me to know what happened to Pierre beforehand and afterward in terms of the story we tell. How important was the show’s cast and creative team in guiding you through this experience? I am so glad that I had people like our director, Rachel Chavkin, and our composer-librettist, Dave Malloy, to work with me. They really give me more confidence in my abilities. And it’s such a special opportunity that Dave wrote the solo “Dust and Ashes” just for me. I have to admit, I was very nervous

The show is somewhat interactive. How does it feel to be two feet from a member of the audience at times? As a concert performer, you basically look out into an abyss of people, but here, as soon as you look directly into the eyeballs of people in their seats, it’s a very different experience. One thing people who do Broadway talk about is how eight shows a week can feel repetitious. But here, there is no repetition because of this interaction with the audience. Every night, people respond differently: Some people are nervous; some people sing along; some people even try to grope me. Luckily, I have that padding to protect me. You are nominated for your fourth Grammy Award, for “Stages Live.” How do you feel about that honor? It was very surprising. First, I am so caught up in this show that, although I usually know when the nominations are coming out, this year, I forgot. So whenever it happens, I don’t take it for granted. As for winning, let’s just say so many factors go into whether it’s your year or not. How do you compare LA and NYC? I love both cities for different reasons. Los Angeles is where I was born and raised, with places I’ve gone to since I was a kid. New York is a city I’m constantly finding new things in. The energy of NYC beats to my rhythm. I also find because there is so much shared space in NYC and so many public places, that all walks of life are rubbing shoulders much more than in LA, where there is much more of a separation via car or house or office. We’re all in this crazy jar all shook up together. What do you love most about your current neighborhood? When I first moved to NYC, I lived in the Time Warner Center. It was an amazing view and awesome to basically go to the mall in my pajamas. But as I started traveling Downtown more, I appreciated the neighborhood vibe and the older buildings, so I moved there. Favorite spots in NY? I love the [American] Museum of Natural History. In Central Park, I get a coffee and people-watch. I can eat my way through this city way too easily. I love The Odeon in TriBeCa. My go-to place on show days is Cha Pa’s. They have amazing pho [a Vietnamese soup], which is great for the throat! So does that mean there’s more Broadway in your future? Absolutely. I am hooked. It’s not just that it’s my favorite of anything I’ve ever done, but I’ve fulfilled my childhood dream.

Pastries, both sweet and savory, from top-tier NYC restaurants. by Meryl Pearlstein Photographed by Evan Sung


1 The NoMad Bar, 10 W. 28th St., ● 347.472.5660. For an inventive savory pastry, try The Humm Dog, a foodieworthy creation of Chef Daniel Humm. The hot dog is wrapped in bacon and covered with truffle mayonnaise, Gruyère and celery relish. After eating one of these, you’ll never order a “dirty water” dog again. A gourmet turn for the humble frankfurter, the NoMad Bar’s version is American royalty set on a throne of Pastry Chef Mark Welker’s rich brioche roll. One food critic recently raved about the dish, calling it Humm’s “opulent little creation.” 2 Humm elevates the concept of chick● en potpie as only a Michelin-starred chef might. Together with pastry genius Welker, The NoMad Bar presents a pub version of its famous chicken for two, both dishes known for including foie gras and truffles. Served tableside, the potpie seems soufflé-like with truffle cream and more foie gras infused through a hole in the pastry cover. Inside tip: The bar has an upstairs area as well, which is sometimes less crowded.

3 Harbs, 1374 Third Ave., 646.896.1511; ● 198 Ninth Ave., 646.336.6888. The Japanese pastry chefs at Harbs pride themselves on crafting beautiful and whimsical cakes. Handmade with swirls of matcha tea mousse and sponge cake enveloped in whipped cream, the Green Tea Mousse Cake is an objet d’art with red beans placed on the lower layer, adding a punch of color to the green and white canvas. Enjoy an oversize slice and a yuzu Sencha tea in the bakery’s tearoom. 4 Japanese artistry is evident again in an● other layered creation that’s as artistic as it is delicious. Harbs’ Mille Crepes cake is a fluffy pyramid of six crepes interspersed with cream filling and fruit. Bananas, honeydew, strawberries and whatever’s seasonal give the sense of eating a fruit-salad-laced shortcake at every bite. Snag a slice at one of Harbs’ serene, banquette-lined patisseries, both in Manhattan and the only ones in the United States.




5 Tulsi, 211 E. 46th St., 212.888.0820. ● With a menu that dispels any notions of Indian food not qualifying as haute cuisine, Michelin-starred Tulsi presents desserts worthy of a top toque. Chef Eric McCarthy, himself a multiple Michelin-star recipient who has appeared on “Chopped,” uses techniques learned from his mother in the Goa province of India. Pictured here is Malai Shrikhand Guyija, a savory sweet blend of crumbled dry milk, chocolate chips and saffron-flavored yogurt in mini cones with sweet mint sauce. 6 With his Balushahi Sheera, McCarthy ● creates a mash-up of two popular Indian desserts. Like a glazed doughnut but with a flakier texture, the Balushahi that is turned out at Tulsi sits in artistic harmony with Sheera, a pudding-like dessert made from semolina, sugar, saffron, cardamom and water. Another of the chef’s original savory and sweet creations, Balushahi Sheera will have you celebrating that you saved room for dessert.








7 ●

Gabriel Kreuther, 41 W. 42nd St., 212.257.5826. If there’s one dish that I dream about when it comes to savory pastries, it’s Michelin-starred Chef Gabriel Kreuther’s acclaimed tarte flambée. Simple and perfect, this thin-crust specialty— topped with crème fraîche, fromage blanc, smoked bacon and sweet onions—hearkens back to the Alsatian farm of Kreuther’s youth. The pizza-like tarte, served only at the restaurant’s bar, makes for a shareable starter or a rich dinner, especially when paired with a glass or two of Riesling.

8 Also on the bar menu of the Alsatian ● restaurant, the apple strudel from Kreuther and Pastry Chef Marc Aumont is a buttery confection of four layers of phyllo dough, surrounding Golden Delicious and Granny Smith apples, raisins, candied pecans, sour cream and a dash of rum. The strudel is served with caramel sauce and prune/Armagnac ice cream and goes well with a glass of sweet white wine from Gabriel Kreuther’s extensive wine list. 9 Veniero’s, 342 E. 11th St., 212.674.7070. ●


A New York icon since 1894 and the brainchild of Antonio Veniero, who came to NYC from Vico Equense, Italy, in 1885, Veniero’s is the real deal when it comes to Italian bakeries. Venture beyond the familiar cookies, cheesecake and cannoli to The Camilla, a luscious yellow sponge cake soaked in raspberry liqueur and layered with raspberry jam and whipped cream infused with Godiva white chocolate liqueur, all topped with impossibly soft marzipan. It’s a Veniero’s original. Grab a piece to enjoy in your hotel room later on, or relax in the café under the soft lighting and beautiful stained-glass ceiling. IN NEW YORK | FEBRUARY 2017 | INNEWYORK.COM


10 10 Benoit, 60 W. 55th St., 646.943.7373. ●

When you’ve found perfection, you don’t mess with it. And that’s exactly what Benoit’s Executive Chef Laetitia Rouabah espouses when she executes a complex 1892 recipe for Pâté en Croûte by Lucien Tendret (a French gastronome), a mixture of duck foie gras, ground veal shoulder, pork loin, chicken, pork fat and pistachios. The pâté is framed by a buttery crust and chilled with a Ruby Port sauce to create the traditional jellied consistency. A French bistro classic. 11 French pastry chefs are plentiful in ● New York City, but no one creates a millefeuille like Paris-trained head Pastry Chef Thomas Padovani. Flaky and filled with layers of vanilla cream, Benoit’s vanilla mille-feuille is a traditional dessert found at its Parisian sibling. Beautifully accompanied by a sweet white wine from Jurançon (South West France), this dessert is an artful finish to a leisurely meal, or a pretheater or post-theater dinner.


IN New YORK | february 2017 |


12 12 Two Little Red Hens, 1652 Second Ave., ●

212.452.0476. The Upper East Side’s Two Little Red Hens bakery has been thrilling New Yorkers since the early 1990s with luscious cakes and cupcakes. Everything is baked in-house. Steeped in American tradition, the popular Red Velvet is a crimsontoned butter cake with a hint of cocoa, covered with smooth cream-cheese frosting. If a full slice is too much, cupcakes and mini cupcakes are available. Be prepared to stand in line for service and a café table.


13 ●

A perennial fave at the bakery is the Brooklyn Blackout cake, a perfect marriage of three layers of rich chocolate pudding with four layers of moist chocolate cake, shrouded in chocolate fudge and dusted with chocolate cake crumbs on the side. Dating back to World War II, the recipe stays fresh as ever at this beloved American bakery. And, as any chocolate cake lover knows, pairing a slice with a glass of cold milk is de rigueur.

Everything you need to know about wine from those in the know. by Jackie Cooperman


photography by Noah Fecks

New York’s renowned chefs get lots of attention, but at the city’s most lauded restaurants, a new group of accessible sommeliers is leading diners to unexpected, but highly enjoyable, wines. Here, they tell us what they’re excited about for 2017, and how they can help diners navigate the city’s best wine lists. 26


Aldo Sohm, Wine Director, Le Bernardin, 155 W. 51st St., 212.554.1515; Partner/Wine Director, Aldo Sohm Wine Bar, 151 W. 51st St., 212.554.1143

I think, because I’m Austrian, people think I know a thing or two about it. It’s such a great time for wine drinking, because people are reading and taking classes and are excited by it.

How do you take away the intimidation that some people feel when ordering from a wine list? I love this situation because I love to work with people. Let’s not forget: We all started with zero knowledge, and we know how intimidating it can be. The first thing I try to do is to make the customer comfortable before discussing the wine itself, in a playful way. I usually ask what wines do you enjoy? Lighter, fuller, reds, whites? Even if they say big Cabernets, which are a bit difficult to pair with the food at Le Bernardin, we find options.

You mentioned Austrian wines. Tell me more. Austrian wines are clean, dry and different from German wines. They are very food-friendly and go great with raw seafood. People hear Riesling and think of sweetness, but the majority of Prosecco has more sugar than Riesling. It’s more perception than reality. With Riesling, the sweetness is only on the tip of the tongue. I like Grüner Veltliner, the signature varietal of Austria, paired with Tasmanian sea trout. It’s perfect. On our tasting menu, we pair a seafood pasta with a glass of 100-percent Austrian Chardonnay. It’s rich, powerful and fresh.

Le Bernardin is known for its fine fish and seafood. What are the challenges to pairing wine with this cuisine? It’s simple, but not so simple: If the preparation is poached, I’ll stay closer to white. If it’s grilled, I may have room for red wine and, of course, it depends on the sauce. If the sauce has a red wine base, I have room for red wine. I can’t do a Cabernet Sauvignon from California with 16-percent alcohol, but I can do a Pinot. Rules are really just guidelines, and should sometimes be broken. In Italy, if you have grilled chicken breast and a bit of tomato sauce, you’ll get red wine, and it’s delicious. If you go to southern France, they’ll serve chilled red wine with grilled fish, and it’s delicious.



What about wine by the glass? If you’re two people with a four-course meal to finish, a bottle is not very difficult, so typically I’d always order a bottle. That said: If you order a bottle and find the wine’s too fruity, too dry or too tannic, we want to know. The sommelier wants you always to have the best possible wine in a comfortable price range for you. We’re here to make you want to come back, have a great time and build a relationship. What’s the etiquette when establishing a comfortable price range? If you have the wine list and the sommelier approaches you, give a price span, so they see your budget. If you don’t want to say it out loud, you can point to two wines, and then the sommelier knows immediately what to suggest. It’s a clear signal without letting your dining partner know your budget.



Which regions and varietals are popular right now? France is a big area for us. We sell a lot of Champagne because it works especially well [with our dishes]: Burgundy is also very big for us. Strangely enough, we sell a lot of Austrian wine:



What should you know before going to dine at a restaurant with an impressive wine list? Of course, you can go online and do research, or we can even send our list to you, but the bottom line is you don’t know the dishes like the sommeliers do. If you come here, we really care about what we do and that you have a great experience. Our only goal is to serve and that you have a great time. I might recommend guests ask for a pairing, which is a great way to learn about wine in a very playful way. Are there any misconceptions about sommeliers that you’d like to dispel? When you look at the wine scene over the last five years in New York, it’s pretty impressive. The younger sommeliers are so passionate. I’m 45 years old and one of the dinosaurs here. When I started out, we were able to taste all the big Burgundies and all the big Bordeaux, because they were affordable. The younger sommeliers have different angles because they weren’t able to taste all of those things anymore. To have that diversity in flavors and tastes is great and a very important thing.

we can speak with every guest who would like us to. It’s important to be honest about what’s most important to you in terms of wine. Do you have such strong tastes that you want [a bottle of] Cabernet Sauvignon no matter what you’re eating, or do you want us to help you match the wine that best goes with the food? What are your thoughts on red for meats and whites for fish and chicken? I think Dover sole and white Burgundy are perfect together, but white wine with pasta and fish is an antiquated idea. We also serve a lot of seafood-friendly reds. They’re mineral-driven, higher acid wines like Etna Rosso from Sicily and Rossese di Dolceacqua from Liguria. Marea has an impressive list of Italian wines. Are diners appreciating Italian wines more? We get calls for obscure Italian varietals all the time. Recently, we had a wellknown musician ask for a white varietal from the Marche called Pecorino. Usually, when I hear “pecorino,” I think of cheese: Luckily, we had a bottle, so I didn’t look stupid at the table.

Do you use a sommelier yourself? When I go out, I often put myself in the hands of the sommelier. That’s how I learn. If I am somewhere with a very big wine list, I don’t want to take the time to go through it because I see my partner so rarely anyway and I don’t want to waste time reading. I usually will say to the sommelier, “This is my budget. Don’t kill me. I just want to have a good time.”

Any up-and-coming wine regions? Etna, Sicily, one of the fastest-growing regions in Europe. For a white varietal, I love Carricante, an indigenous white grape. Etna Bianco di Se, which we also sell by the glass, is an unusual blend of Carricante, Catarratto and Minnella grapes. For reds, I love Nerello Mascalese and another appellation called Faro.

Arvid Rosengren, Wine Director, Charlie Bird restaurant 5 King St., 212.235.7133

How would you respond to a diner seeking basic advice about choosing wine with his or her meal? Our wine list is updated every day online: That’s a good tool to use. People will sometimes call in advance for advice. We have three sommeliers on the floor for dinner and one or two for every lunch service, so

Some people enjoy wine, but don’t know much about it and get overwhelmed by a huge wine list. We’re seeing a movement now for restaurants doing smaller wine lists that are equally good. We have about 145 wines on the list at Charlie Bird, and I’d like to think it’s all wines people want to drink. For novice

Arvid Rosengren



wine drinkers, I recommend the website, and an app called pickabottle, that digests wine lists at restaurants in New York City. How should diners communicate their budget to a sommelier? Simply say what you want to spend. I love when young people come in and they say, “we really like wine but we can only spend $45.” If someone tells me that, I’m likely going to find them something really great and only charge them $45, even if it’s a more expensive bottle. Are the rules—red is for meats, white is for fish, pasta and poultry—still applicable? I think less in terms of color and more in terms of weight and structure of a wine. You can have a big, bold white that will go with lamb or stew, but you don’t want to pair a heavy red with oysters. I’d err on lighter wines with heavier food than the opposite. Any regions particularly fashionable right now? The trend at the moment is for lower alcohol, more elegant wines. People want that as opposed to the big, powerful wines from the late 1990s and early 2000s, when California, Bordeaux and the Barossa Valley were gaining huge scores from critics. We’re back to more viable wines with higher acidity, less heaviness. Burgundy, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir-based wines, and their counterparts in America or New Zealand, are all popular now, as are Champagne and Bordeaux.

How about people not wanting to name a price in front of their dining companions? I’d typically ask a guest if there’s a wine he or she drinks frequently. If they say, “Armand Rousseau Chambertin 2005,” I know price is not necessarily an issue. If they say, “I had an interesting wine from Oregon, I think Pinot Noir,” that will signal to me that maybe they’re still learning about wine. I can use that to understand what they’re asking for. There’s also a way to do that visually, where when you’re showing the guest a wine list you’re drawing their eyes to the price column and you can from there, without announcing it, follow their eyes and see what makes them comfortable. Whites for fish and poultry, reds for beef: still applicable? It’s like saying don’t wear white after Labor Day. Those “rules” are only meant to be only guidelines. Sometimes red wine with fish can be an interesting pairing, depending on the style of the dish and the structure of the wine. Red wines can be lighter than whites, and pairing a white wine with a heavy protein like lamb is perfectly acceptable. I’ve also had scallop crudo with Beaujolais. What changes are you seeing in how your clients drink wine? I think now more than ever people want to know what’s in their wine, how it’s made and where it’s coming from. People are also looking for value. The Jura is an amazing region for great value, especially if you drink Burgundy. Beaujolais is another one, probably one of the greatest price-to-value ratios that exists in wine.


Justin Timsit, Wine Director, Gramercy Tavern 42 E. 20th St., 212.477.0777 How do you suggest customers approach sommeliers? I would say the best thing for people to do is to know that there’s someone here to help them find what they like. The spirit of our restaurant is that people feel extremely comfortable and not alienated by the wine list. Find a budget you’re comfortable with and ask for assistance if you need it. The sommeliers and all of our wine captains are all trained to help with that. I’ll ask two or three questions and then deliver what you like.

What’s the most interesting wine question you’ve been asked? I had a new guest ask for an all-biodynamic wine pairing. I didn’t understand why, and she said she thought non-biodynamic wines give you headaches. I don’t know how true that is, but I wasn’t going to try and dissuade her if it made her happy. We put together a biodynamic tasting, and we explained the story behind every bottle. That was her first time at Gramercy Tavern, and, since then, she and her husband have been back on a regular basis. IN NEW YORK | FEBRUARY 2017 | INNEWYORK.COM
